WOW! Thanuja, your watercolour portrait is simply stunning! The detailing, colours and composition are amazing. As I mentioned before, you are truly a gifted artist; painting a portrait, that too in watercolour, is a true Master's touch. Looking forward to more of your work,

This is outstanding work, what colours did you use to get the skin tones

Thank you for the compliment, Adam. I was painting with a set of Windsor & Newton watercolour cakes, so I didn’t know which exact colours they were(since I’d thrown away the labels long ago). I also used a few Derwent water-soluble pencils. My guess would be burnt sienna, burnt umber, raw umber, yellow ochre, Naples yellow, Davy’s grey, Payne’s grey..
