Study of male nude torso in mixed media
"Study of male nude torso in mixed media" by Hilary J. England,
Goauche and Conte on paper, 14" X 18"
I always like to try and mix thing up and use materials I don't use to often, so when I came across a box of gouaches tucked away in my studio, and decided to try and use them for a quick figure study. I was really rusty with using the gouache, because it is a unique medium on it's own -- with the utility somewhere smack in the middle between watercolor and acrylics. Just an interesting medium to use.
So, I did this hour figure study of a very lean and tanned young man, and I'm glad I tried something a little out of the box for myself. Keeps things from getting too routine :-)
