Blackwater Willow by emera Blackwater Willow by emera

Watercolor and pencil, 9x12" on bristol board.

Medium-wise - I'd give the bristol a 3/5, was far less disastrous than I expected as a medium choice, and I was surprised by how much I liked painting on a smooth surface, but there were some weird and bad interactions around the edges of the sheet. So I might have to pick up some hotpress paper, or just prep the bristol better before painting.

I sense a melancholy ambivalence from her about her existence.

Incredible hands, very expressive! The dark fingertips and contorted fingers make me think of Egon Schiele.

Thank you so much for the observation! I love Schiele but wasn't consciously thinking of him at all while drawing this, but I'm definitely interested in that kind of uncomfortable spidery energy/poise...
