Here is a watercolor, 11 x 5 inches. This was done as a study for a painting I hope to start soon. I am not sure of leaving that much nudity and know I need to adjust some of the figures proportions but the idea is still what I saw in my head. I like the colors but expect the final will be more relaxed with more interesting diversity of color. When a painting is this small it is fine to have a lot of solid colors but, for me, when they are done at perhaps 36 or more inches high the actual paint needs to have more colors going on in each area to maintain the viewer's eye's interest.

I like the simplification of shapes. Will you maintain this in the larger painting?

I still haven't gotten to the final painting. [grin] BUT, the answer is yes, I will keep the shapes. Thanks for the comment.
