Sunday Sketches - Watercolor Faces

>> Saturday, April 13, 2013

Watercolor Sketch
Playing with watercolors and decided to try some faces.  I've never done portraits in watercolor and I had fun playing with these two sketches.  I know there are plenty of things wrong with them, I wasn't going for accuracy as much as just playing with some colors and shading.
Watercolor Sketch
There are things I love about both and things that are really off, like the mouth in this second sketch.  It's almost a Picasso! lol.  Linking up with Sunday Sketches.  Hope you are having a good weekend!

Beautiful portraits, love your skin and hair tones! <3

i think watercolour is such a difficult medium especially for portraits so you did a great job on the skin tone and hair in these two getting it right first time - at least with acrylic you can keep on going over it til you get it right which I love!

I find faces really hard in watercolour - so much to go wrong! You've done a great job.

watercolor is so tough, these look great, especially the skin tone and the hair!
