This is a smaller study of Sadie on an 1/8th sheet of 140# Fabriano cold press watercolor paper, using the same photo. I'm practicing skin tones and shadows still, working toward cleaner, softer shadows. In the first photo, pencil lines can be seen in parts of the face and the face has two layers on it as does the shadow part of the arm and hand. There is a line along the jaw line that needs to be taken out. You can see in the hair area I have lightly underpainted with raw sienna.
In the second photo, I used a mix of cobalt blue and burnt sienna in the hair, lashes and eyebrows and added another layer to the skin. I've noticed that in this study I have made Sadie look older than she actually was in the photo. I'm still not achieving that smooth skin tone look that I am after before I paint a larger painting. So more practice is needed.
