It's been some time since I've used transparent watercolor for something more than a quick sketch.
I did do a couple of sketches of this woman in a watercolor wash using only black. I had posted them earlier and am re-posting here for comparison.
I think I lost some of the freshness of the sketch in the face though her clothing looks loosely painted. Sometimes I have to put away the painting for a little while and look at it again to determine how I feel about it.
Often I have one of two feelings. Either I am disappointed with the finish or I am satisfied that it is the best that I can do at the time.
