Ink and Wash Face

I was trying to follow a YouTube Tutorial for drawing faces with watercolor, but the instructor went really fast.  Instead of pausing it, I just kept throwing paint onto the page and hoped for the best.

Surprise!  That plan didn’t work and I ended up with a horrible mess.  I left it for a couple days, and then went back into it with ink, and Voila – I now LOVE this piece!

Also, on a completely unrelated note, here’s a photo of one of the streets in the gated community that we stayed at over Christmas, in Mesa.
