Watercolor Day 11

I tried to be a little more adventurous today. I sketched this on 7/31/2021 and kind of forgot about it. I did sketch with the intention of doing something a little more different. I’m not sure I like this style, or it might be because the paper started falling apart on me as I kept messing with it. Strathmore paper. It was more expensive, but I’m not sure I like it. I like the Canson better. Some day, I might get something nicer. The colors are a little darker. I used the usual colors but added purples and greens and so many layers! I do think I like it, but I’m not sure I want to continue on this route with watercolors. We will see. I might change my mind.

Anyway, the sketch…

The painting…

I still think I might mess with it some more. Especially those eyebrows. Wowzers!

The textured paper where it started to fall apart does kind of give it something I like around the cheeks. Like a cool texture.
