Nude a week 6: Odalisque

Odalisque.  Wate- colour on water-colour paper.  43x50 cm.  A twenty minute sketch. Click to see this larger.
This is a water-colour on water-colour paper.  You can see the paper's rough texture on the bottom left corner where I've used dry-brush effect and also wet-in-wet flooding on this area.  Alexandra is wearing very exotic satin silk loose trousers.  Once again, I chose the position to draw the model so I could emphasise the strong C rhythm starting behind the ear and sweeping down neck, right arm, dark trouser shadow, to her right knee.  The arms fall into a lovely line moving from right arm, hand, over right knee and on to the left foot and toe.
