    1st AR3; much left to learn

    I'll consider this a learning experience. I decided to dive right into the watercolor tool (my last WC experience was probably back in kindergarten) and also decided (foolishly, I think) to take a lovely color reference photo of Alyssa Milano and attempt to capture her monochromatically (I've enjoyed mono portraits before in 2.5 with crayon and pencil). While more accomplished Ragers might have success at this, I was unable to do this actress justice (on the plus side, I DID greatly increase my experience with the eraser tool and the wonderful undo button). In the end, I found myself using pencil and a small amount of glitter and airbrush in addition to the WC brush and knife. While this could use more work, it's time to wrap it up for me (for now, at least).

    I like AR3 a great deal but have much to learn.

    I think with all the tools you have experienced and used in this portrait is a great success. She looks gorgeous already in this monochrome painting. I also want to see her in color.

    Seems a terrific AR3 start. Hats off to your for just diving right in, and especially with the water colors - you're a brave soul. I think this came out very well - give yourself a couple of high-fives in my book.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that hair - it's terrific - Judith hit the nail on the head.

    Well JB, the WC brush is a different breed of cat to be sure and I certainly couldn't live without the eraser and undo tools. So call it mixed media and accept the fact that it turned out awfully darn good.
