stefanie stretching (3)

Watercolor on Lanaquarelle HP 300 gsm, 14" x 10".

the flesh tones in these paintings are modeled with a single series of pigments — quinacridone magenta, perylene red, gold ochre, burnt sienna, and benzimida maroon — muted by glazes of phthalo green yellow shade.

i regret that the color balance and even the visual texture of these paintings does not come through in the images. there is still something i do not understand about correctly photographing my works.
