For "B"

This is the latest - Tried to get away from the very warm colors that I love....I think I could have done a better job with the values to give it more contrast but overall I like the feeling!

"Wishful Thinking"

This is one of the very first watercolors I did - and I still like it as one of my best. I tried to incorporate some of the lessons learned like the water - assisted vertical paint flow and the mingling of various colors for the skin. I should try to do it again and see whether I can improve on the technique - and if I can replicate that lucky water flow!! BTW, that is a hand mirror being held in her hand...tough to tell for some ...(guess I really do need to improve my technique :) ) ...oh, and yeah, the brownish-red round detail at the bottom is not part of her abdomen but a flask sitting at her side. :) Perhaps I should have painted it green the color it actually was!
