Watercolor Portrait of a Woman

I have been keeping to my resolution of painting/drawing/working every day, but haven’t had anything complete to share until today. I’m still playing with these watercolors to get the feel of the medium again, as I want to do some more original, serious pieces with them.  

Couple Making Love

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…

Well, as you can see by the below image, landscapes are not my forte. However, I am going to keep trying a few to improve my technique. I have no real desire to paint landscapes, but it’s a nice distraction from the human form from time to time.
