contrast

This piece was created with just the brush and watercolors, no preliminary sketching with a pencil.  This adds to the stress...but makes you focus on the light and shadows.  We have been using a strong side light and cutting the overhead lights in the studio when we work from the model.  It makes for dramatic contrast.
