Trying to loosen up Watercolor Portrait Studies


I have been working on "loosening up" and "get it right the first time" direct approach to painting in watercolors. Not an easy task as watercolors dry alot lighter so when you look at dark thick masses of color on your pallette it is kind of scary. :D
These are small quick studies
Angelic study
3.75 * 5.25 inch on 140lb CP is done using a limited pallett of Burnt Sienna, aureolin and paynes grey
Venus Abstract
3.5 * 5.25 inch

Hope this inspires you to step outside your comfort zone and experiment a little.
