PORTRAIT 3 = ALAINA:COLORBLOCK GIRL
I took the portrait that wasn't working and washed it down with a heavy spray of clean water. Then, while it was still wet, went in with Caran d'Ache watercolor crayons (I have a set of 10). I wanted to color the background like Alaina might color it - blocks of color in primary, bright colors.
Then as the paper was drying, I touched in some areas in the hair and lips and eyes.
Alaina: Colorblock Girl
I was hoping to have Jocelyn's and Alaina's portraits done, matted and framed for their birthday party tomorrow but that isn't going to happen. Maybe I'll photocopy these for birthday cards and hold the real paintings for another time.
