Playing with Poses


I played with painting figures in different yoga poses today.


I did some gesture drawing with the paint brush
to capture the movement of the pose.


I used darker tones to create the shadows.


Then I did the thing that I am oh so very addicted to:
(I outlined every little stroke I made with sharpie!)


And I cut them out.
I had so much fun playing with these poses!

I like the life size figures idea, you could do an awesome installation... somewhere..

you could make them on masonite, and cut them out with my jigsaw, or i could cut them out for you if you traced the outline.

Hi Eliza, I enjoyed looking at your inspiration board and then looking at some of your newer posts. Wow! You have been busy! These figures are wonderful and you photographed them so well. Your sharpie technique really emphasizes the poses. It is a pleasure to witness your creativity. Thank you.
