Back Painting Again


Well, it seems like forever, but I was able to get to a portrait session today. Even though I didn't get the whole session in... late again! This watercolor took about an hour of painting time. Sometimes I think, especially with watercolor, a time limit helps to keep the focus and not to overwork the painting. It was really easy to pick colors today... got away from my purples... Check out my etsy shop.

Wow... I looked at the larger image and studied the hair because I love how you rendered it.

This is incredible!
How can you paint a watercolor like this so quickly? If I was in the States, I would take lessons in your class :)
