I used photos from a gig I went to last Tuesday in a series of watercolour exercises aimed at gradually reducing the amount of line and paint I apply to the paper. The top two were the last I did, the rest are a jumble of earlier attempts. The more white paper I leave the better the effect. The gig was by the fabulous Bonfire Radicals, an experimental folk band.
These are great. Really spontaneous feeling and lively, as I imagined the music to be.
The music was great. I’ve linked to their website in my post and there’s a zany promo video that gives you an idea. There’s a few other clips of them on YouTube. Multi talented too.
Lovely drawings, I particularly like the first 2. You’re right, the amount of white is really important.
Thanks. I can’t remember the overall order but these were the last I drew and those with the most paint the first.
