Limited Palette Study
I have been doing so much sketching with my Doc Martin Hydrus watercolors, I thought I might have forgotten how to paint. I found a charming reference photo in Wet Canvas Reference Library, and did this while watching Upstairs Downstairs last night.
The colors didn't scan too well, and Photoshop didn't warm it up as it is in real life, but I still sort of like it. In "real life," the skirt shimmers. She reminds me of my daughter-in-law, which makes it even better for me.
