A lesson with Maxine Dodd

Maxine Dodd did a workshop showing how to put figures into a painting. You could use any medium and I chose, as she did, watercolour. She wanted to create believable people in a crowd with the minimum of detail. She was basing her tuition on a book called "Learn to paint people quickly". A small very encouraging tome by Hazel Soan, which I have bought. I have added here the results of my first efforts but need to continue practicing and as I gain in skill and confidence will try to incorporate figures in other paintings in oils, perhaps. Ken Lilley
