Hello everyone and thanks again. I am glad it is being enjoyed.
Here is todays progress.
I have done some more detailing darks around her eyes, nose edge and mouth. I am using purples. I am letting the colour drop on transparent so that underneath layers build up nicely. I am not really dragging the brush, more touching down paint with it in spots.
I have added some green/cobalt blues to the hair and the braids. I have done a second set of washing colours into her top. Using alot of Ultramarine and Sienna. I am scrubbing back to keep some areas light and highlighted.
I have begun establishing the shapes in the hand. I have made a concious note that her neckline of her top kind of visually gets confusing with her hand so I have to make sure I keep some depth differentiation there.
All for today. Wednesdays are my busy cleaning days and pool playing league night. Kids are loaded with homework usually too.

New Progress

Hi Everyone: Here is the latest progress. I dropped in the last of the darks in her face. These were in and around her eyelids, mouth and nose. I also have deepened the shading near her ear on her face there. I am done with her face I believe. Will double check it at the end.
Her hair I am done. I may scrub back a bit in the braids laying on her shoulder is all.
The background is done as is her top. I want her top to remain undetailed. I am on her hand and that will be done next progress image.
I have to finish this up as I have 5 things waiting for Christmas now. Thsi is always a busy time of year but this year I made sure to keep it less stressful by not accepting as many.
Sorry, these images are showing a little greyed down from my digital camera. The final will be a scan which always turns out better for me, and more accurate. I can't fit the board it is on in where my scanner sits.
Enjoy!
Joss

Hi All: Ok, she is done. I scanned the painting and it is appearing pretty accurate. The top is a bit lighter than in the original but it is pretty close.
Hi Em. Yes, I darkened that area in behind the braids. I agree, it was too light there. Her top is too light on my screen to.
I did go into the face, particularly the nose shapes, again.
She is a little looser than I personally handle my watercolour portraits but I really feel it works here.
Thanks all! Suggestions and comments are most welcome.
One thing I must add is that my main reason for loving watercolour is the nice little accidental shapes and edges one gets after the paint laid down is allowed to just sit and dry.
If the lady whose portrait this is wants it, she is welcome to have it Dana. I can send it to you.
Joss

Alan, thank you!
I see one thing I want to fix already! lol Her eye on our right seems a bit off in the partial pupil placement and that sharp dip up has to go.

I love the additions of the blue/purple to her skin!!! really grounds her with the background.

the hand turned out great!!

the area behind the braids blends more now

overall a superb portrait and first rate WIP!!!

thank you Joss

Hi Joss

Another wonderfull job on this portrait. Don't sweat it tho. She just has 'lazy eye' is all. Perfectly normal for some. My daughter has a lazy eye so your portrait not alone lol

Really tho Joss you did a great job on this.

Very nice. I really like how you did the skin.I give youa 5* on this one. As with all your WIP's, another very educational painting.
Bravo!!!

Johnnie

Wow!

This is absolutely beautiful, Joss! I've been watching as you've gone along and have been amazed at your deft treatment of what I thought was a difficult painting. You've captured her perfectly! I loved talking to her and, of course, asked to photograph her before snapping away. She did NOT take a bad photo! She asked if she'd be famous. I told her she already was, in addition to being beautiful. A fun-loving lady full of life, she is.

I'd LOVE to be able to give this to her!!! Thank you so much for the offer. And, it will make her so happy. I'll email you privately and give you my address.

Thank you again, beautiful job!
