Painting darker skin tones. Day 11 od 29 faces

I'm painting darker skin tones today. I am very happy with this face!
I used umber, ochre, red, blue and sienna and pink.  Since the size is so tiny, it was barely drops of watercolor or not even that... more like tiny brush tips.
I didn't want to paint a background because I liked the face so much ;o)

Drawing a face looking up. Day 10 of 29 faces

Drawing a face looking up. This to me is one of the trickiest angles for a face!
I could use more practicing ;o) This is also done in a 2x2 inches watercolor paper.
Basically I have all the elements placed up high in the head, show the bottom of the jaw and neck and the shadowing helps.
Since I am avoiding too many details, the less lines the better, and it still gives an impression of the looking-up angle.

Drawing a face looking down. 29 faces... day 9.

Drawing a face looking down.
Part of the challenge is making the face in different angles. Yesterday I made a 3/4 to the side, and today a face looking down. The best way to create this effect is to have all the face elements towards the bottom and enlarge a bit the top part.
Then added color, I am working with watercolors this time around.
Are you trying to practice different angles too?

2x2 inches

Adding hair to a painting. Face 8 of 29

Adding hair to a painting:
She could've easily be an alien but a few more colors and hair, and things changed dramatically in this 2x2 tiny watercolor face.

Face 6 of 29 faces

Watercolor in 2x2 inches size. What size are you working on?
My husband said this neck angle is impossible... I said I am having fun!
It is called whimsical for a reason, right? ;o)

Are you keeping up? I hope so!

Face 5 of 29 faces

One thing about working in small scale: You finish rather quickly! lol
I am not worried about perfection so running colors are ok, it is part of the watercolor fun.

Face 4 of 29 faces, more watercolors

I am having fun with these tiny faces! Watercolor and ink. I might seal them with something, because watercolors will always tend to run if wet again!
