I've been working on a new sketch.
One of my GREAT friends turned 40 and I wanted to make her a watercolor portrait.
I am just now starting to work on faces. I've always stayed away from them....very difficult to get everything just right. My art teacher would make me do three faces in a row and they would always looks SO different. We would burst out laughing, LOL! So, here we go!!!
The hardest part is getting the correct distance of eyes, nose, mouth. At least for me, lol.
Also, I've found the more I sketch shadows...the easier it is to paint and remember where darker paint should go. This way you don't keep working the same spot. Working the same spot leaves a "muddy" look. The muddy look makes me totally LOCA!!!!!
I first used pencil and watercolor pencils for the sketch. Now I added watercolor paint. Now, I like to let it dry before I make the final details.
Here she is!!
