Inna. watercolor on moleskine sketch
the eyes are fantastic!
What a beautiful eyes!!!
this is awesome!
I agree these eyes are beautiful and full of expression.
Absolutely gorgeous.. I love the shine on the lips and the slight definition of the cheekbones. I wish I were good at watercolors!
Fantastic portrait of a lovely young lady.
she’s so beautiful; i love the wispiness of her hair.
Amazingly beautiful! Congratulations!
I can only repeat what is said above!
Can I have Inna’s phone number? Please?
Thats so amazing,
This is so beautiful and full of life. Amazing work.
great job! I love the expression – it makes the viewer stare at her! Congrats!
Thank you all so much. I am overwhelmed.Leo, absolutely.
This is lovely! Looking back at your past postings, you have another painting of this lady. She should be honored!
Thank you,Susan. I been drawing her since the day she was born.
This is beautiful.
What a pleasure to look at.
Thank you very much for warm words.
I love it… the pose, colours and tints in this beautifully expressive portrait remind me of how my English grandmother used to paint in the late 1880s. However, your image has more life, with emotion showing through, and tiny strands of hair flowing loose across her face… neither would have been allowed in Victorian times!
Thank you for your comment, Ed. Beauty have no time frames. I was trying to be as honest and closest to nature as possible. And moleskine sketch does not take watercolor easily. To achieve this yellowish background we use to tint paper with tea at school.
¡Este retrato es maravilloso!. A mí, personalmente, me hace soñar y me recuerda al personaje de Nadia de la novela “Miguel Strogoff” de Julio Verne.
This portrait is wonderful¡. I, personally, makes me dream and reminds me of Nadia’s character in the novel “Michael Strogoff” by Jules Verne.
Thank you, Nuria, I am honored.
WOW! This is probably the best watercolor portrait i’ve seen! I love how it looks so timeless, and the fact that it’s loose and detailed at the same time just gives it this amazing effect. How did you do the details like that, what steps did you take to get it that way?
Thank you, Sasha. I just tried to show the inner world trough eyes expression, tried to be as close to reality as possible. I am used to big brushes, this why it is loose. It is really hard to draw her, because she is different every minute.
Great! So how is watercolor on moleskine? Does the paper start to break down or curl or get all wavy?
Very beautiful. I Too was wondering how you managed to use watercolor/gauche on the moleskine sketchbook paper. Whenever I try to use watercolor, it tends to bead and sink through to the next page. I’ve had a bit more success with using guache (when very little water is added) and acrylic (also with very little water).
