A very nice pose. I like this better than the standing poses. There's not much to say about your figure pics - you are confident and they are so well-done. But...not a Picasso in sight! Do you occasionally get a bit wild and do six angles at the same time?

Oh Wendy you make it sound so easy. Watercolour is so difficult to control in such a short time that it feels as wild as doing six angles at once - and I do some really terrible ones that even I don't think are worth bothering to scan!

I guess I was a bit rough suggesting you do lots of pics in one. Your work appears to be achieved so naturally, easily, but of course it does take a keen eye and calm hand!
Julie, what did you major in at art school? I really liked screen printing but I don't have the equipment these days.

Wendy, at one time I specialised in botanical and zoological illustration, but it wasn't right for me, so I did a post grad in general graphic design. I always liked painting and illustration but with graphic design it's possible to make a living from it
