12×16″, watercolor with touches of gesso on Arches CP 140lb. I’m done and I’m glad I haven’t overworked it. But I keep thinking that the background on the right should be darker. What do you think?
For comparison, here is what it looked like before gesso touch-ups: http://watercoloredhands.wordpress.com/2010/10/03/a-portrait-a-day-23-blacksmith-wip/. That post also has a link to the reference photos that I uploaded to WetCanvas reference library. Please feel free to use them for your projects
In case anyone was wondering what happened to me, I am quite well and keeping up with the Portrait A Day project. I am also a mom of a 14-month old boy, who takes a little too much time per pound of weight I have about 6-7 posts worth of material (including some watercolor book reviews) that I will try to post soon. Stay tuned!
