A Drippy Watercolour Portrait

I wanted to paint yesterday, but I didn't want to 'serious paint'. I have a lot of projects on the go, that take a lot of thought and time, and sometimes... it feels tiresome. 

So what to do? Pull out my cheap bristol paper, and try out the amazing Agnes-Cecile's watercolour technique!

I went all out and crazy on this piece. It was a lot of fun. I didn't do a pencil sketch or plan out anything, I just let the paint and my paint brush do the work. 

When this crazy painting was nearing completion, it seemed to scream out for GLITTER!
I glitterized it up, and I like the effect in the eye area... Looks like cloudy nebulae. Very cool. I'd love to try adding some 3D elements to my paintings in the future, like bits of lace, and magazine clippings, and such. That's the fun thing about art, you're always trying new things and experimenting with new materials. Sounds like heaven to me! :)

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!


  1. I super love this. Sometimes I forget to let loose and just paint...I get so caught up on making those perfectly angled and planned things!

    1. Thanks Patricia! All too often I get caught up in the finicky details too. But some days you just have to let loose and throw some paint around. :)

  2. I love this so much! The combination of colors is brilliant! I like painting one in a while, but I never do something as good as this!

    1. Aww thanks Alex! :) I just looked at some of your artwork and I think you have a lot of talent, especially with colour and designs. Keep it up! :) I also love your whole blog's look and feel, really awesome stuff you've got there! :)
