Aquarelle Practice

DSCN1111..DSCN1111...

So I painted this one yesterday and I discovered some things while I was working on it. And after that. The most important is, that white paint is very useful to correct mistakes.

Daily Practice and Analyzing it

DSCN0288 Good points:
* shading of the eyes and lips;
* basic forms are all right;
* I can’t say too much good, not satisfied with it.

I have to improve:
* the paper is not for aquarelle;
* the shading colours on the skin are not consistent, the neck is too dark, the shadings on the face are too light;
* too little eyes, a bit higher than they should be;
* nose is too long, lips are too low;
* the face and the neck is a little bigger than they should be.
* and a lot more.

The important thing is to never give up and try it again 10 000 times 😀
