that is fantastic! I love it. Has to be one of my favs . That eye!


Is that really watercolor? It looks more like guache. How do you get the white hairs up on the forehead, where they overlap the brown ones? Did you use a fairly dry brush? I mean no real washes? How big is this piece?

Yup, it's just plain watercolor paint. 9X12'' paper
When it came to the white hairs, I had sort of a dilema but I ended up actually blending the brown into the white instead of the other way around
