My Watercolour swatches

I've been meaning to do this for ages and I finally got around to creating a swatch table for my watercolours. For a lot of watercolour paints the colour on the tube can looks so different to the actual paint colour so I did this table for a true reference. Looking at it now I should have grouped the colours together... I'll probably redo it someday, but this will do for now.

Green Eyed Girl 2

I'm really happy with the eyes, nose and mouth but I then starting doing hair and then decided it wasn't a good idea and bleed some of the colour out but then covered it up (thats why there is so much colour in the top left)... In hides sight I would have left the top left white and kept the colour on the right.

- Watercolours, watercolour pencil and ink pens (black and white)
- A3 (29.7cm x 42cm)

 The brown was a mistake...
