I always return to portraits as a comfort zone even though I wander all over the map in terms of subject matter. There is something about constructing the human form that is endlessly interesting.
I saw this reference in the April portraiture forum of WetCanvas and knew that I needed to try it. Its a bit sombre, almost eerie if you look at it long enough, but fascinating enough to keep me interested.
I figured it was time for another watercolour portrait. This is the start of it on 300lb Arches paper. It measures 12 x 15. There's a lot of layers to go yet.
