Fashion statement: hooded

#29faces,  no 7, watercolours.



'Fashion statement: hooded', watercolours, 10 by 8 ins., paper


I tried a more realistic style for today's face no 7.  

This is a small watercolour painting... inspired by a photo in the wetcanvas reference library. 

I liked her stripey jacket with hood.  This image would look really good in other media too, I think.

The new thing I used today was a ruling pen to apply masking fluid ...it is so easy to use, much cleaner than using a brush.  I'm glad I bought one at last.

Till later.  Bye for now.

Love this June - Great clothes!
And what a wonderful expression she has too - real attitude!
Glad you recommend the ruling pen too - I have that on my 'wanted list'

looks good :) the only problem i have with ruling pens is that if I forget to clean them out, they are usually wrecked :/ but thats just me being lazy no fault of the tool lol

I love the look of this little painting. I'm always so impressed by watercolors, and you did a good job of getting them to do what you wanted them to.
