For this piece I tried to get more texture into the paint, by painting several layers over and over. I added splashes of colour to get a more colourful face.

I think I like her - do you?

Since scanning this picture I have added some eyelashes and she is coming together nicely.

The piece of watercolour paper is too large for my scanner, so it lifted and let light in causing a blur :(

I will have to photograph the completed painting again, but here's some I have so far.
