I did some upper arm studies

in watercolor, to start figuring out just how our wonderful body is built up. Essentially the upper arm is like a simplified sandwich, Bicep, triceps and the Bracialis in between. Sticking out under the bicep on the inner side is the small coracobrachialis.

Most of these arent seen unless you are quite muscular, but its good to know what goes on under the skin, and what muscles do what when you bend and twist. Essential knowledge if one wants to have an easier time working from imagination. A little anatomy goes a long way.
