Greek and Roman statues in watercolour

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I downloaded photos of Greek and Roman statues to practice figure drawing in watercolour. These figures are drawn with pencil then painted but I want to learn to draw figures with a brush without any underlaying drawing.

Aphrodite bathing
A marble statue of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Sculptor Praxiteles 400 BC.

Note to Self: I like the complimentary colours used to represent the marble and bronze figures. Cerulean Blue + Cadmium red, beautiful granulation from puddles of wash. I think Aphodite is my best of this project.
