I've been so busy setting up at our new place and doing errands that it took me three days to finish this face drawing. I had drawn portraits before, but lately I had been practicing the different facial elements separately in my sketchbook so that my drawings could turn out a bit more realistic overall. I think these studies have helped. Later on I am planning on making a post giving some tips about drawing realistic faces.
I haven't been able to get my paints out in a couple of days, but here are a couple of watercolor pieces I did several months ago that I hadn't posted. The first was based on a picture that I selected because I thought it would be a great opportunity to practice hand postures and I hadn't painted a hand in watercolors before. The second painting was a quick warm-up experiment I did before starting a bigger painting.
Thanks for the visit and I hope to see you around soon!
