Watercolor Figure Studies

The last two weeks have been filled with a royal welcome back to the Big Island of Hawaii. My days have been filled with seeing old friends, meeting new ones and communing with the tropical sun and ocean. I am seriously not missing the snow and cold!

Today I painted from the model, thinking how much I missed my painting buddy and fabulous artist Arthur Johnsen who recently passed last year. He really caught the feeling of old Hawaii with the many vibrant landscapes he painted along the Red Road. His friends and local artists continue to meet at his studio to study from the figure. Here are a couple of quick figure studies in watercolor from the week. I am warming up for the Watercolor Workshop I’m offering next Sunday afternoon in Arthur’s studio.
