Portrait of a Boy, In Progress

Portrait of a Boy, 14"x13", watercolor

This is about 5 hours' worth of work. Starting to take shape! I'm working on adding light shadows and a few darks for contrast. I managed to figure out a good setup with my camera and tripod and shot some video while I painted, as well. If you're interested in watching me paint the eyes, check out the video below. It's a time lapse of 17 minutes of painting. I'm planning on making more videos like this as time allows.

Portrait of a Boy

Nothing much to see yet, since I've only been able to work for about an hour at a time in the evenings, but I expect to get a lot more work done tomorrow. At this point, I've done the first two washes of color and the first layer of pinks. For now, here's a detail of the painting.
