This painting gave me trouble. The light is coming slightly from the back and to the side, so the face is supposed to be mostly in shadow, but I chickened out and didn’t do the shadow part as dark as it should have been. There are quite a few layers of paint on the face as I tried to darken it step by step, but I finally had to stop myself before I made it too much of a mess. With watercolor, if I don’t get it right in the first step, I find it hard to fix without making it look muddy.
