New Watercolor series - "Mood Swings"

Paintings are on 10 x 14 inch Arches Watercolor paper.  I'm planning to mount them on Wood Cradles with the sides painted black, so they can be displayed without frames.

Innocence

Contented

Surprise

Disdain

Unsure

Sad

I'm still working on this series.  If anybody has a suggestion for an expression,  I would be happy include it in this group of moody faces..

New Watercolor Paintings

I'm experimenting in a relatively new media for me.  I do use some charcoal during the process, so when the work is dry, I spray the painting with both a Fixative and UV protective spray.  The work is then mounted onto 1.5" deep wood cradles with the sides painted black.  When thoroughly dry, an archival coat of acrylic varnish follows.  Unlike traditional watercolor works, this presentation does not require framing under glass.  The wood cradle is wired on the back and ready to hang.

This painting is on 140# WC Paper- 12" x 9"Moment in the Sun
Moment in the Sun - Thinking but not too deeply, confident but not enough. Knows she has time to get to where she is headed!
