 A second online course through Domestika. com is by Ale Casanova, also a portrait painting course.  Not as much information as the first one, but still learning things.  Ale paints by lightly painting an underlayer over the portrait and building up the color and shape.  Again, too heavy-handed so the color was too intense right away.  Not sure I will ever learn to have a very light touch with watercolor or drawing.

I had to lift a lot of color from this one to sculpt the shapes (and still left that nose wonky!

You are always up for a challenge: brava! Noses are hard ... I am always trying to find some "shorthand" way of doing them
