Another fun, fun, fun watercolor portrait finished today. No background – just the head. I am learning so much by painting these faces. I loved the shock of hair on this boy. I am using cadmium red both mixed and alone very frequently. It seems to bring the face to life. I think I may still lighten up the mouth a little. It looks too much like a girl. Still having trouble with the nose and getting the soft, almost peach-fuzzy look of a childs mouth. Great challenge, great fun, great day!
