Watercolour Portraits

The Studio construction is moving along and I also got in some art time over the last few days. I took a workshop last Sunday, Watercolour Portraits with Aleesha Davis Fowlie at Island Blue Print in Victoria and had a great time. I learned quite a few things.
1. Don't be in a hurry to get it done, build your layers up.
2. Use transparent pigments.
3. Use a light a mark maker possible to start off with so you don't see any lines.
4. Mix enough colour
5. My colour mixing is not too bad
I didn't like the image I choose in class. It was too small. I did the one above to try and practice all the things we learned in class I still have some work to do on it. I want to do a series of portraits to learn more, after all its all about the process!
