Figure Drawing Practice

I don’t remember which Croquis Cafe number it was, sorry. If you’ve never heard of Croquis Cafe it’s a youtube channel that films live models so people at home can practice “live” figure drawing.

Fruit Exercise

I love doing exercises like this where it’s just about painting and getting the colors right (I did not use the included color picks) and I don’t really have to think about the drawing part. I find it very relaxing. You can download the file here if you want to try it yourself.

I did a quick pencil sketch first, then experimented with a water soluble watercolor crayon and a waterbrush. Wish I'd had a bit more time to add in more of the background.
