Water colour Wednesday (5)

Once you start working in a new medium, you suddenly see it everywhere. People using it in ways you never even thought of.
See, when you think of water colours you think of landscapes and flowers and traditional things like that, but then I stumbled across this blogpost by Gentian and completely fell in love with her style.

I am far from the world's best in drawing faces, but if you never do you'll never learn, so...

I sprayed the page a little:

I started painting by mixing sap green and Payne's gray:

and then Hooker's Green light and Payene's Gray and using some of the grey on its own:

Of course my result is nowhere near Gentian's work, but I quite like it...
