Man with Hat – 14 January 2011

Man with Hat - 14 January 2011 - watercolor and India ink on paper - 5.5"x8"

I like the playfulness I managed with the face on this one. I cranked the drawing out pretty quickly, so it has a nice looseness. After the drawing, I put down a wash of red, Indian red, orange, then worked a lot of opaque paint over that initial layer (I employ that wash technique frequently – first described here.)
