Watercolor selfie

You knew it was coming it was just a question of "When".
This is a 7.9x7.9 watercolor . What I have learned so far:
 Start with mid-tones, concentrate on value shapes, watch for forms and connections.

  6. Fab! I'm liking the effect of using multiple glazes - good choice for modeling shapes using watercolor!
