Mis?Adventures in Watercolor-Self Portrait in California Quail


While I was playing around with the colors from Daniel Smith’s California Quail triad, I suspected that they would be good colors for portrait. They are very versatile colors.

I’ve thought about painting a self portrait for a while, and decided to give it a whirl.

Way back when, some 35 years ago or so, I painted portraits in oils.  I was surprised how easily the skill came back.  But what you have here is essentially an oil-painting done using watercolors, lol!

I’m not unhappy with it, but I want to do more watercolory things!

Colors: Lunar Blue, Quinacridone Burnt Orange and French Ochre.
