This is the finished version of the previous WIP. I could work more on her hat but I am tired of working on this so I am stopping here.
Detail of eyes.
This is the photo I used, courtesy of Wet Canvas. Not a great likeness but since this was just a painting project and not a real portrait project I didn't make the extra effort to make it exact.

This is a work in progress for a watercolor group I belong to online. It is our project for February. I think I have the face almost finished but need to finish the neck and body plus the hat and hair. I am using a photo that I got from Wetcanvas. When I have it finished I will post the photo too and see how well I did at the likeness. This is my first ever portrait.
This is my second attempt at this. I am happy with how he turned out. I was wondering if I would be able to accomplish a real dark black but the pencil black is really quite intense so it wasn't a problem.
This is the watercolor version. I am testing several new watercolor papers and this one was done on Windsor and Newton 140# coldpress. I liked it except once the color is down you can't move it much.
I am taking an online watercolor pencil class right now so I am going to be posting some quick paintings done with that medium.
This is my first for the class although I have done some WC pencil in the past but not a lot. I need to purchase some pencils that have more earth tones to make my animals look better.
