Watercolour Challenge

Thursday, April 13, 2017

I found a painting by Alexandra Gallagher in an art magazine that I really wanted to try out in watercolour.  It is of a little girl in the sunshine wearing a red and white striped top.

 

The original is actually painted in oils but to me it had the look of a watercolour painting and I was up for a challenge (again!) to work with the medium.

 

Here is the result so far. I am happy enough with the arm and the clothing but I think I have gone wrong somewhere with the face.  

 

Watercolour is not normally my favourite medium but this is probably more to do with the fact that I haven't quite got to grips with its idiosynchrasies!  However, I really enjoyed this exercise so will continue to see where it leads.
