Watercolor Portrait of Kevin's Mom Joyce - Finishing Touches
Joyce's skin has been glazed a few more times to give more of a golden glow and I have done much more work on her facial features. Her face looks a touch orange as the paper is still damp so once dry it should look more glowing rather than orange. I still need to add a bit more shadow to her under eye area and shape her cheeks a touch more so that the highlights on her cheeks, nose and upper lip are not so bright.
Her teeth also need to be grayed down more as they are much too bright which is causing them to appear to be a little protruding. This part goes slowly as the face is so small and each change needs to dry before refining further so patience, patience, patience. Luckily I have lots of time schedule in the studio this week (yay) so I can make a change....be patient and work on other paintings while waiting for the paper to dry :)
