Just Another Portrait…

this piece has been a wild ride. its been almost 2 years since ive touched my watercolors (the jimi hendrix portrait) and man did i forget how much work is put into the preliminary stages. the ending color scheme wasnt really what i was going for but i blame that on the 2 year brake i took. the blue-green in the background came out a little too green and kinda throws everything off. the only thing i was pretty satisfied with was the face, which is where i want the focus to be so i made the difficult choice to stop messin with it and leave it as it was. so here is all the preliminary work and the final. enjoy :)

8.5"x11" watercolor
