When or Where?

At first thought, I planned to use the obvious title: Lady in Red but chose to go with the text on the page.  I started this one with a piece of watercolor paper.  The first layer was watercolor paints followed with various collage elements.  I then altered them with oil pastels and acrylic paint.  I had to make several attempts on the woman’s face because everything was smearing all together.  I was too impatient about waiting for the black ink to dry and it was a mess.  I thought about painting over the whole thing and starting over but it’s a process and I’m learning from the process.

I don’t like the white space below the pic’s on my last two posts.  I’m trying to figure out what I’m doing to cause that.
