Hi everyone, sharing with you today another watercolor portrait practice painting of an old man. I started like most my pieces with the basic tones before moving on to the details. I have found using watercolour pencils effective in capturing sharp details that would be normally be difficult with a brush and combining the two creates an interesting finish. It's easy to overwork watercolors so I forced myself to stop and not add anymore.

The process...

Completed on A3 300gsm paper over a few hours. Taking breaks helped me see the painting with fresh eyes again and see what I could improve.

Thank you for your support it is much appreciated! :)
