Re: Watercolor Challenge March 2017 - Yunnan Woman

I suppose we could always "take her to the dentist" and get her treated before painting her portrait.

Re: Watercolor Challenge March 2017 - Yunnan Woman

Lyndylu, I see your point. Mine was not understood the way I felt it. I found disturbing this health issue, more ; this is sad, must hurt and yes ... we should help her if possible. Difficult to invest myself in a subject that gives me a genuine malaise...not in a jugmental or contempt way !!!

Yes, Addmud, I also felt that kind of sympathy and tried to de-emphasize her condition in my humble rendering.

Re: Watercolor Challenge March 2017 - Yunnan Woman

Hi all,

This is a great reference, and after having painted a few dozen portraits after my last try, I decided to try again. Using this as a yardstick to measure my improvement

Re: Watercolor Challenge March 2017 - Yunnan Woman

Thanks Doug You post very interesting challenges, I remember one of the first ones I did , Florentine School Statue, which you posted in 2014. It got hooked me and got me started.

Re: Watercolor Challenge March 2017 - Yunnan Woman

I think it would be crazy to try to draw this on watercolor paper. Take your time draw it out first on drawing paper with easy to erase graphite. Simply use measurement. Get one feature right like eye and use that to measure everything else. take time. When you get it exactly right, darken lines and transfer to watercolor paper. Or you can a use tool called proportional dividers. Just a different way to measure.
