Golden Girl


I have been testing and experimenting with the Golden watercolors again. Something I love to do is to create a shaded pencil portrait on watercolor paper and then watercolor over it, so I tried it with the new Golden watercolors.  
This painting is 6"x9" and is on 140 lb. cold-pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.  I used a #2 graphite pencil for the drawing and the new watercolors for color.  I was happy with the way it turned out.
