Li, thanks for the great images :clap: .

I painted the Rastafarian man in watercolors. My challenge for this portrait was to save the whites. I used masking fluid to prevent me from painting everything. The first picture is after about 2 hrs, I just removed the masking. And the second one is after another hour.

Very nice portrait Kitty, you definitely got his likeness down. I love his skin tones and the light. I really like the technique of using more color blocking and less fine detail, very effective. Beautiful work.
