Mix media painting : Watercolour + Acrylic

At first I exaggerated her leg a bit too long so I fixed it shorter and make her high heels super pointy because I think it's would be cool that way . Her heard is painted by watercolour because the details are too small . I applied gesso and crackle paste to make the texture of the painting , I think it gives a cool effect in the painting .

Biggest watercolour format that I have ever done . This was very challenging because I used wet on wet technique but however I just discovered a medium called "Gum Arabic " ( a yellow transparent liquid like oil) which gave me an advantage to control the water . Also it made the colour less transparent and even darker . I am quite happy with the result and also the little spark by gouache was a great ideal :) . Yay I am happy!

My first experimental with watercolor on gesso medium and a bit of acrylic . I had a hard time to figure it out how it works in the beginning . I though I fail because I made the back ground sort of disconnected with the character but my teacher, Frank, helped me out by giving many suggestions to correct my mistake . Therefore , I adjust violet on the character so it kind of blend in the back ground . So , this is how it turns out after having his feedback , I am so happy ! : )

One my most successful watercolour wet on wet technique I guess? how ever I think the area as at the end of the bridge is not really well done as composition .I think I could elaborate it more detail but even if I add a darker color on top , it would ruin the spark if the painting . So oh well!
