Modern style portrait of woman.

This is a Portrait I did in watercolor and acrylic of a young Woman. It was inspired by a woman on the beach. I wanted to use a lot of color and to keep things modern. The black and the white is acrylic.

It is painted on watercolor paper with Windsor Newton mediums. I used only three small brushes.

I worked on it a lot longer than I wanted and like usual the concept was nothing like my finished project. I did not want to do something this representational but was hoping for more abstract with the face being an element but not the focus. I wanted to use the black as an accent, but got a little involved with it and it became a secondary subject. The background was too bright and too sharp, so I gave the background a watery wash with black acrylic to dull it down and and that gave the face and hair areas bright contrast.

I was trying to show the black coming in at one side and leaving at the other.
