My first watercolour portrait

Watercolour portrait
This was my first attempt at a watercolour portrait.
I have done portraits in Acrylics, oils, charcoal and pencil.

Watercolour is a bit messy compared to others. But the fancy effect that watercolour gives is just awesome.

    1. Thank You Abhra pal... Oil and Acrylic are more manageable than watercolour...One mistake and the portrait will be ruined..It is kind of messy.

    1. To my horror, watercolour gave me such a hard time. Will do caricatures or random doodles with watercolour...Not another portrait I guess... Left another half-way through..:P
