I drew and painted most of this one a while back… and just finished it off this week. It’s watercolor on India Ink (on paper.) Early on I did a lot of the watercolor in rather wet wash – so many of the colors more-or-less blended – which is difficult to control – but sometimes turns out nicely. I liked it on this one, but it was a little light, so I’ve added more darks… It’s a bit tough to make later layers blend in with earlier wet washes… so I didn’t go back into this for a while.
I mentioned some portrait-with-hands inspiration on an earlier blog entry.
