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.

Apologies for the blue tint of the photo. What you see as very light blue (eg in the top left corner) is actually pure white. Energy-saving lamps in the studio have a blue light tone and this tone was transferred to the photo. I did not bother to wait for daylight in order to take a new photo, and I did not correct it using photo software either, sorry.

This is an experiment/watercolour practice. The focus is technical: palette, wet/dry relative to wet/wet, light/shadow, and shaping/tonality using layers -- and on top of this; making "a picture", that is making complicated concepts such as "life", "expression", "sentiment" etc appear using only a brush, water, and pigment.
