Geisha Girl

I had a piece of watercolor that I was using to spread leftover paint all over it.  I picked it up the other night when I was cleaning up my art space and I saw an eye,  I quickly drew in another one with a paint brush and black paint.  Then I drew the nose with the brush.  I have problems drawing lips so I thought I should use a pencil and draw one on first but when I started to draw with the brush, I could see my pencil line.  It worked like it is so I didn’t change anything.  I had a battle with myself not to add to this…the only other thing I did was define the head-piece she is wearing.

    This turned out GREAT! I have a problem with overworking things too. I wish I would just quit when I think it needs more, because when I do more it gets worse. I love this just the way it is. (And your lips look good, too.)

    Yep, I’m starting to gravitate towards the leftover paint papers w minimal further painting. This one is fantastic!
