It is seldom that I get my project painting completed first in the group. I've done several self portraits over the years, and haven't been too happy with the results. As I was thinking about this project, I kind of had a vision of how I wanted to handle the painting. It was a "flash before your eyes" type of thing. That got me charged up, and the painting pretty much turned out the way I saw it. This is painted on Arches 140 lb., cold press. I use Winsor Newton and Daniel Smith watercolors. Size is 11" x 16".
I have always struggled with portraits in watercolour and this project was a really good challenge. It has been done on Indian Handmade paper (14" X 10") with Camlin tube colours. I hope to make a few portraits in w/c in the future and hopefully improve a bit. :) Thanks for the opportunity and best wishes.
