Face #1

Here is Face #1 in my series of 29 Faces for 29 Days.  I am challenging myself lately to try using nontraditional portrait colors, and I have also decided to try working with colors I usually don’t, so that is why she is the way she is.  🙂  Watercolor on 140 lb Strathmore watercolor journal paper.

  8. I love portraits in non-traditional colors. This is a great color combo! She looks so peaceful. I wonder what she’s thinking about.

  9. Your contrasting textures ( smooth facial planes and the curly hair) is striking.
