30 Paintings in 30 Days: Day 24: Portrait Study in Watercolor


I decided to do a portrait in watercolor for day 24 - just a study.  This is a face from my imagination and I was concentrating on skin tones mostly!
This is 12" x 9" and is painted on Canson 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper with QoR watercolors from Golden Paints.

This is good. I wish I could draw/paint people.

J L Johnson...Thank you! I think that drawing people just takes lots of practice and at 76, I have had lots of practice! lol

Love that your imagination can make up a face! A great portrait and I love the way the light hits his brown eyes.
