Watercolor

"Yellow Shades"
watercolor on Strathmore
Doing people in watercolor...or at least attempting to.
Watercolor mystifies me...time to reach for the learning curve..with more practice and more reading and vids. 
This is my daughter at the motocross races in the hot sun and dirt.  I love how little people's sunglasses are always gi-normous on their faces.  These were even kidsized sunglasses. Hands, hands, hands...time to do a study or two of those. She was wiping the dirt from her hands...it doesn't read right.  Fun to paint it though - fond memories.

Lovely. I think it's their little noses that make glasses look so big!

Your watercolor rocks! She looks adorable - I agree with you about kiddy shades!
