'Botswana woman wearing head wrap', watercolours, 8 by 6 ins., paper.
Susie's new playpen.
How to play in a cat playpen.
I got out my box of watercolour paints this week to do some portrait practice. I haven't used watercolour in ages.
I tried a palette of mostly earth colours which was a bit of a change for me. For this woman, I used the following: gold ochre, burnt sienna, burnt umber, alizarin crimson and french ultramarine. I like this mix of colours for her brown skin tones.
This is the same woman as in this month's blog header. (Inspired by photos of African/Botswana woman by Annie Hamman in LFI17 course).
As you can see from Susie's photos, she has a new toy, which she loves to play in ...mainly around 11 pm...a night toy.
Have a great week,
Bye for now.
June and Susie.
