Watercolor Portrait, Final
I'm calling this painting finished for the most part. I may go in and correct the area of the nose between the eyes which needs to recede just a bit. Many thanks to Morgue File for the reference photo.
Painting this brought home to me how much control I lack when it comes to painting with watercolor. When I say control, I mean paint to water ratio, which brush stroke to use, when to paint wet on wet or when to paint dry. Perhaps it is the effort to learn all of that is what makes watercolor so fascinating to me.
