I decided to try my hand at another watercolor portrait. I grabbed a photo reference off the internet. I almost did an ink outline with this one, but instead I tried for another watercolor-only approach like my last two portraits – I guess it’s a softer approach?
Here is where I wish I had a better scanner! The colors were a bit light and the scanner I was using didn’t quite pick them up as accurately as I would have liked. With this one, I was trying to get the shading right on the face, especially – I feel like there is some improvement with this one, even over the Crackerjack Kid portrait from last week. I had some difficulties with the hair – I think I prefer the shorter side over the longer side.
On to the next one!
