Ginger: 22-02-2015

watercolor on paper

It sometimes helps to see the painting in a photo. I know this one is not finished. The hair right over her left eye needs a touchup. Her jaw is too manly but I think I can correct that with some shading.  Her mouth needs some work.
 I don't know what that shadow is across her cheekbones. It's not on the painting...

Collage on paper

Going for something different here. I was playing in a sketchbook with blending watercolors. Then decided to cut up the bits and blobs and make a face. I like it.

watercolor on paper

I used the same tracing of yesterday's 'Scarlett' only I turned the face into this. Squared off the chin, added ears, heavier brows, etc. The stubble was tricky (I used the tip of a small flat brush) but I like the way it turned out.

Scarlett: 09-02-2015

watercolor on paper

I printed out a photo of Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara and traced the outline of her face and her features...eyes, nose, get the proper proportions and transferred them onto my paper. Still working on eyes!
