Watercolor Day 40

I’m still at it with my watercolor pencils. I decided to try something different. Vincent Van Gogh is my all time favorite artist. I wanted to use his self portrait color pallet as inspiration for a portrait I made. I wanted a more abstract look to the portrait. I really like the soft colors I have been doing, but, I think I might want to explore options in this direction.

For a first time making abstract portraits, I don’t think I did too bad. I actually like it a lot. My camera wasn’t quite accurate with the colors on this one, but, it is close enough.

I want to try again, maybe with gouache or acrylics. For now, I’m going to keep making these with my watercolor pencils, until I get the hang of the color palette a little better.
