Lovely portrait, Lynne.

Excellent work Lynne. I use acrylic white quite a lot on watercolours as it's better then standard white. Only fault, it tends to shade a little yellow making me use the paper white at times.. Have you found that?

REally good portrait Lynne. The hair is so realistic.

Well captured Lynne, just like her. Love how you have done her hair.

I like the mixed media here, I have used charcoal and watercolour which fixes it but you loose some of the soft charcoal texture, l will post a example if your interested?

Thank you every one for your comments. Jim I don't usually add acrylic for whites in water colours as it is not opaque enough & will take on some of the underlying colour - but many artists use white gouache on W/C as is is more opaque (- I usually leave the white of the paper for W/Cs ) Jeff I would love to see an example of your W/C & charcoal painting

This mix seems to have worked a treat. Lovely tones.

Hi Lynne Just posted some examples in my sketch gallery

Charcoal & Acrylic on canvas . I've yet to use fixative on the charcoal & I'm hoping it doesn't discolour the acrylic !
