So, this was interesting to paint. I’ve been using the Arteza watercolor pen brushes, but was having trouble layering. So I ended up trying some watercolors from a pan to mix, and did not get the colors I wanted. However, my Prismacolor watercolor pencils did help with some shading and details. As always, learning lessons and finding my way through what I want. Hopefully all these studies will end up with some final, final pieces for the collection. I had to crop this image because it’s graphic (well, the part that is cropped out, anyhow). I love the full version but I almost prefer the cropped version because it brings the attention to the hands, which I think are the truly erotic part here. However, I like the size of the original image, so if I come back to this I may play with the composition a bit more.
