Going back to my roots…

She believed she could

I have been painting girls with red hair, freckles and blue eyes lately. And I loved every single one of them. Will paint them again. Thought I would change it up and get back to my roots, my Chinese roots… so, here is a black hair Chinese girl with black eyes. Watercolor is the medium. For the background, I tried to use salt, but did not have the right salt, so it did not work very well. Instead I used a stencil and an old brush to scrub the watercolor off to create the circles and wing shadows. Did not know if it would work, but I like the outcome:) She has a soft look, yet determination in her eyes, hence the quote. It made me happy. 4th painting of the new year – hope I can keep it up:)
