Woman with Orange Flowers – Watercolour and Gouache

Woman with Orange Flowers

Watercolour and gouache on A5 size paper.

Day 13 of the World Watercolour Month challenge.

With this painting I started with a quick drawing in a mauve (Albrecht Durer) watersoluble pencil; and after wetting the lines, I added some watercolour washes… Then finished with a few details in white gouache mixed with watercolour.

I’ve drawn portraits over the years, however, these days with the many women I draw, I prefer to work mainly from my imagination. This can lead to anatomical distortions, but conveying a mood, or emotion is now my main objective. As I aim towards realism, I try to keep these distortions within reasonable bounds! I share about drawing faces here.

Thanks for visiting!
