I had these two already on my computer so I decided to post them (especially since I did these during class).
I really liked doing the watercolor gestures. I loved it actually. I'm really into color and I find that my work gets better if color is involved. I want to experiment with colored conte sometime soon if it is permitted in class... or do a longer watercolor pose.
I have a hard time with just black & white charcoal, conte, etc... but I'm hoping (and trying!) to get better.
