My Process: Part Four

I managed to warm up Jacob's face a little more today with a light wash of Alizarin Crimson. Then I laid similar washes for Molly's face. This area takes up almost half of the composition. So I worked with a bigger brush and worked wet-into-wet a section at a time. To avoid the demarkation lines left by watercolor as it dries next to a dry area, I wet more than what I was going to paint. Again, I kept the blue tints near her eyes and temples and added red to the cheeks, chin and nose. Once everything totally dries, I will begin adding the darks and the details of the face. (I'm resisting the use of a hair drier!!)
