Fun Figures

Had a fun day…no pressure…..going through photographs chosing figures that appealed to me or provided a challenge started the ball rolling.  These are painted on Kilamengro paper, 11×15, a quarter sheet of watercolor paper.  The subject and figures were drawn with a brush…this gives me freedom to think related shapes and eliminate detail.  Hard and soft edges keeps the eye moving from one value to another.   Simplification of the story was major because the  figures are the most important.  I didn’t realize how many selections there were to chose from until I started looking through all my stacks of photos.  Hope you enjoy stepping into the scenes as though you were there…..there is enough mystery for you to imagine your own story……keep painting..JoBeth
