I am making a print similar to this watercolour, only using a real dolmen/passage grave as my model. In this post I will detail the complete process from idea to print. This post will be updated as the process evolves.

Bad bad watercolour, bad

Painting / watercolour: Practice/experiment (this is not a portrait).

Untitled ("female face with a very long nose")
Watercolour practice / study. 2019. ~DIN A4 size

Bear with me for publishing this as it does indeed look "wrong". However, anatomically correctness or similarity to any person was not the purpose. This was painted upside-down inspired by a randomly selected reference photo (google search for "face" or similar) -- using no initial sketch and no outline nor any other types of help/aides/tools. I deliberately made it as hard to do as possible, save for using a blindfold and restricting my movement.
