Watercolor Portrait of Kevin's Mom Joyce - Building up Facial Features and Hair
Her skin tone has been built up further and will be softened and have a bit more dept added back in once her face and hair are brought up to the same level of completion. The cute green bikini has had it's first layers painted and I will continue to deepen and add shape to it.
It is a bit of a slow process when adding in the details in a small area like this (1x3/4") so it is really important not to rush in and try to make corrections and adjustments until the paper is completely dry as with watercolor, the pigments bleed very easily, so patience is key. Have I mentioned I am not the most patient person, luckily there are lots of other areas to work on to distract me :)
