Rainy day studies

While we experience the first outer bands of Hurricane Sandy (the brunt of which is, thankfully, bypassing us) I decided to play around with watercolors.  Wet rainy days have that effect on me... I decided to start out exploring some of the ideas I got from Kate Worm's wonderful workshop, then I moved on to new ones.  Kate introduced me to the art of Kim Frohsin, a California-based artist.  I love her work.  I just ordered a couple of her books - so the bigger seated figure study in the photo below is inspired by one of her paintings.  I had ordered some Ampersand Aquabord (yes, it's spelled that way) to try.  It is loads of fun!  Here are some of the studies I've done today and over the last few days...
