Watercolors are particularly nice because they're transparent and you can layer the colors on top of one another. One is also capable of making really beautiful wash effects with the right techniques.
First watercolor I did in high school, 2008. That's my sister posing, I really liked how the light was hitting her face.
Watercolors are really fun to work with, but I find that they're easier to paint from photo. Its really hard not to sit and paint layer by layer when watercolors and the appropriate brushes are capable of such detail. Hope you liked these, let me know what you think.
By the way, I've decided, if you haven't noticed yet, I've decided to log my art backwards kindof and track my progress since high school. I'm looking forward to sharing my last few years with you all.
