I've been so busy lately, having no time for either painting or blogging. So, as soon as I found a few free hours this weekend, I grabbed the brushes and did these studies. They are based on photos I took on my vacation in Mexico.
In the mean time so much has happened in blog-space... I am eager now to catch up.

Lovely portraits. Watercolour is the hardest medium to do faces. My favourite is the Mayan woman 1.

Hello Blaga:) Beautiful portraits! It must have difficult because the Mayan people have a certain typical face. You did achieve it exactly. The hair of all those ladies is beautiful! Great job done:)xx
