My return to a more realistic style. Painting the first wash in this style is a lot of fun because I can be creative and loose with the coloring. It's exciting to see how they turn out.
The second wash is more structured as I start defining the features. I also restrict my palette, using mostly browns and pinks from here onward.
I debated between finishing with a brown watercolor outline or a dark ink outline. I went with the ink.
In retrospect, I should have used the brown watercolor; the ink is too harsh.
Oh well, the artist's path is paved with failed experiments. So I'm going to try this one again soon, and see if I can improve it. :)
