Quick Gelliplate sketches

To encourage me to stick to quick sketches only, I used (quick drying) acrylic paint on a Gelliplate,"drawing" with cotton buds.

To make it's more of a game for Ostara (age 6 = my only model), I used different colours and let her choose a pose, depending on how the colour made her feel.

Sleepy, reading, swimming, smelling flowers, running, cheeky.

It's interesting how images look when you know you have to draw quickly (as the paint would dry) and with little detail. It forced me to let go and try to capture the essence of a pose, rather than keep going back and adding detail.
