Gallery of Faces - Portrait #4

Morning Smile
It's been a while since I posted something for my Gallery of Faces project.

Here's a little 5 x 7 piece I started a while back and put away for a while. I pulled it out this morning and finished it by adding some darks to her hair, shadows in and around her face, a few strokes to bring out the ruffles in her gown, and finally some "pink" to her cheeks.

It's a watercolor I adapted and painted from a magazine photograph. I especially liked the "smile" she had on her face.

Chelsea

Here's my newest painting. I've named her "Chelsea."
