Value Portrait in Watercolor


This is a demonstration that I did for my watercolor students when we were working on portraits. I wanted them to see the shapes using values and then think of color later. It is a nice quick exercise to do before any portrait... or painting for that matter.

Hello Maria has enjoyed not having the same color expression, so I think until time is more difficult.
A good year 2013 ..............
