A Watercolour Portrait

My progress in a watercolour portrait from early this morning until this evening.This is the most fascinating part of painting.  You have this white paper and by some unknown force working through your hands, you start to mold a 3 dimensional face out of that 2 dimensional surface.  If you are lucky, you keep that same feeling throughout the whole painting process.  I wonder what God was thinking when he formed Adam.  Suppose he was amazed at what his hands did????

Added those darks to know what to work to.

Continued progress.

Sleeping on it tonight and hopefully, I will have a fresh eye in the morning to see what needs fixin’.  And hear what my client says…..

    how are you getting that lovely glow to the skin on all your portraits? It was a treat to see you both in town.
