It has been liberating to work in only two colors, a warm and a cool, glazing one over the other to create a neutral. It streamlines the painting process for me so that I can focus on tone, value and controlling the edges (which is the most difficult thing for me with watercolor). If I had to think about color I would be stalled. But now I'm itching to add more color! On this one I'd love to add a little cadmium red to those cheeks. I think I'll have to go back and do another full color version of her. Also, I could work on this for another day but with watercolor you really lose the freshness the more you noodle with it. Which makes me want to break out the oils (or acrylics) and noodle.
