Study - Dark Haired Girl

I did this study today in homage to Malcolm Liepke - I love his work and I did this study in his style. I did it in watercolor on skecth paper and it is 8X9 inches. It was a fun piece to do.

Very beautiful tribute, his influence and your own particulars. Did you by chance see the latest watercolor magic with the interview with him?

Malcolm Liepke - I love his work and I did see the interview in WC Magic - that is how I first discovered him. There are a lot of examples of his paintings on the net and he had a show in NY, of watercolors in July.

For skin tone - it depends on if I am using watercolor or acrylic -
in watercolor I use American Journey WC paint from Cheap Joes - Peachy Keen, Costal Fog, and usually some yellow ocher and white gouache. In acrylic usually white, yellow ocher and some form of red.
