This is a portrait painting I did of a model with watercolor paints. I like painting portraits because of the way I can bring volume to the piece by using shades. I used a bunch of different black watercolor paints layered throughout the piece which I had not done before so it was a different outcome than what I used to get previously. I did this piece based off of the lectures about the different portraits I saw in different lectures but in my own style. I will definitely use the layered painting technique in the future.
