Romancing the Paint

The background is acrylic but the portrait is all watercolours, watercolour pencils and watercolour crayons. Oh. ok I did use a fine pen for some detail work at the end. I don't think I am done yet but done for tonight. I was going to stop at the previous picture but one thing leads to another. :)
Well it is not exactly me. A romantic version, but I guess I can be forgiven as it is my wedding picture. Listening to Billie Holiday sing the blues.
