She Waits

This is another piece I did over the weekend on Gelli-printed water color paper. This version is cropped and I like how it makes her face more prominent. She's a little lost in the original, so I may need to go back and add something else in. I like how the eyes and the lips turned out. Her eyes are softer and (for once) seem to be properly sized for the angle of her face. 

I'm officially feeling like working on a Gelli print works well for me because it ends up being much more about discovery when I paint. In this case, I saw where her chin needed to start and grow out into her face, so the drawing came easily. I love finding what the painting is meant to be.
