Watercolor Portrait of Girlfriend - Building up the Hair and More Skin Layers

Click Image to Enlarge
I have spent a fair bit of time building up her hair today as well as the flesh tones on her face. The flesh tones need to be built up slowly so they do not appear opaque so I paint a bit of flesh color, paint lots of layers of hair, tiny bit of flesh color, lots more hair...and so the day goes :)

Still several more layers of flesh color to paint and then I can start working more on the details of her eyes and lips.  The top area of her hair is roughly 80% complete and I will just continue to add glazes to make it thicker, recede in areas and glow a touch more.
