Jenny Stone - Profile

I am a self taught artist, specialising in figure painting and drawing.   I make life studies with pen and brush and crayon, using ink and watercolour,  sometimes at a later date, morphing the image into a large oil painting on canvas.    I create a wet abstract frame upon which to hang the figure.   I limit the colour choice. The ink lines soften in the water intermittently and the colour spreads.  I try to focus attention on critical points which balance the pattern of wash and lines where the complexity of the pose limits its duration dramatically.   This prevents any second thoughts and any concept of finish.   I like the tension it causes and this transfers into the drawing.  No second thoughts.
