Watercolor Portrait of Woman with White Hair.

Watercolor Portrait of a woman with white hair was a fun painting I did this last week.  I wanted to do something misty and ethereal which it sort of is.

I am loving the colors of blue and purple contrasting the warmer flesh tones. I did not intend to use black but the eyelashes were too pale so I bit the bullet and added black around the eyes. It seemed wrong to only have black there so I gave a little speckle of black around the side of the face to mark the border of the whitish hair and the face. I wanted to have more movement of a soft texture in the face but just lost interest in doing that after putting so much texture in the background.

I began to feel that I was overworking the picture so I decided it was done.
