#3 of #29 faces challenge

This is something new I have done! A new technic in watercolors, I am so happy to have catched it  and now I am practising it. Naimly a new way to paint. I only applice the color on the place and let it do it´s work. No "rubing" with brush. This is first time I do this and I am quite pleased with the result. The mouth could have been better and the nose a little longer but the rest I am quite pleased with. It is still one of my grandchildren, 12 years old. 

Siis olen todella iloinen ja innoissani uudesta tavasta maalata, jota olen "ajamassa sisään": ei varsinaista "maalausta" vaan "asetan" akvarellivärin paikoilleen johon se jää ja muotoutuu itse kokonaisuuteen sopivaksi. Periaatteessa näin. Hiukset olen maalannut kyllä maalaamalla.

  4. Beautiful portrait! Sch a pretty face ♥

    I wanted to tell you, please add a "label" in your posts, so all of them show in the Linky in the challenge's blog. (labels are in the menu, on the right, when you are typing the post). I will fix it in the Linky when I see your label next time I visit. ♥
    And then you don't have to add a link again :o)

    1. I hope this will be ok. I think to add the labels but I don`t know why you can´t see them. Good that you fix it however! Tell me then how it works please.

  10. This is my favorite of your portraits so far! You have a well-trained eye and I look forward to seeing more of your work. Could you write more about the watercolor technique?

  11. Thank you Sheila! I am happy you like my works:) The watercolor technique is very easy to realize. You make the paper wet first, it can dry then, but you make wet a little the place you´ll paint, take the color in the brush and "drop" on the place. It must be just right wet, not too wet, not too dry. And that´s it! You continue in that way ocer the whole area. It is not my discovery, I have seen how painters are using it (Youtube!). Good luck for practising it Sheila!
