#1 of 30 paintings in 30 days for September

I’ve joined an effort to paint 30 paintings in September, part of the South King County Watercolor Artists group on Facebook.

I’m starting out ahead; I got two small (4″ x 6″) paintings done over the weekend.

The painting for today is #1 of 30 in 30. Click image for full size.

I set up a simple 3-color palette for this: Ultramarine Blue for shadows, Quin. Burnt Scarlett for flesh tomes, and Hansa Yellow Deep as an accent. I did do some mixing, of course, to get other colors and shades, but I tried to keep it simple. No pencil drawing, direct brush to paper. From a black and white photo.
