I finished my partner's portrait for the Annual Portrait Swap for Wetcanvas 2012. My partner was Carol. I did her portrait in watercolor and colored pencil (both regular and watercolor). Matted it will fit into an 11x14 inch frame.ere
I had a rough start. I got the first layer of color on and then just froze. I had no idea where to go from there. I finally picked up the colored pencils and it helped me to get going. I finished it in a few hours tonight.
I would have left off the earrings but she said she always wears earrings. I could tell she wanted them on so....but they were hard. I did cheat on the drawing. I transferred the bits and pieces and the outline from the original. With all the health issues I have had, I just didn't feel up to doing the drawing myself.
It didn't turn out as I had expected but all in all I am happy with it. At least I don't hate it. Now to get it mailed and on to something else.
