Titian-haired Dancers #Watercolor #Qor #Fabriano

Yesterday was the last day of watercolor class for this session.  I'm not sure yet if I'll be able to take the next one, but I'm hoping.

The scheduled lesson was to paint dancers, so I did this painting as practice for the practice, lol!  I was having great trouble deciding what to do with the head of the foremost dancer to suggest the position of the face without adding much detail.  I suddenly realized that long hair would not only do it, but I could use it to cover up a few other flaws, lol.


Qor watercolors - Indian Yellow, Pyrrole Transparent Orange, Phthalocyanine Blue on Fabriano Artistico paper.  Silver Black Velvet brushes 1 inch flat, and sizes 6 and 16.
