110320 lady in hat

An economic use of line summarises the moment. Yellow, green and blue watercolour capture the model as she stares into space. Note the quality of line and the use of wet into wet wash on her face. I like the palette of spring colours and the hat reminds me of an Easter bonnet. Notice too how in pale yellow I draw the head first in order to ensure the hat fits.
