Self portrait in Yellow & Green

Self portrait in Yellow & Green

Very interesting palette. Love your expressive eyes and that wonderful headdress.

Impressive flow style! Beautifully painted.

Thanks so much Carole, I struggled with the greens, it was interesting for sure. (I don't think I accomplished the values correctly on the face, but it was a fun exercise.) Thanks Yoko, I had a lot of fun running the colors and most of it was painted wet into wet.

Striking Nancy. Love the bold use of colour and the brave approach. Nice work.

I appreciate your very kind comment Jim! Thanks!

I think the tonal values are great and the gorgeous blending of the colours is a fine tribute to your skill Nancy.

Stunning use of colour and a wow of a portrait painting altogether

An impressive and striking watercolor, Nancy.

Thank you Detlev, I really appreciate your lovely comment.
