Go Ask Alice

Alice, 10" x 14" ink and watercolor on paper

This is Alice, a friend of one of my daughters. I'd planned to really layer on the color after the initial ink drawing ---




But after the first pale washes of color, I thought it looked just perfect as it was.  She has an angelic, beatific face with a lovely Roman nose, a face of another century.

What do you think, shall I stop or add more color?

I actually think that it's compelling enough as it is.

You're asking *me* what to do!

She is rather Botticelli-an as is...

Of course -- I like to hear anything my readers have to say!

Yes, she is rather delicate and ethereal in her current state, a Venus de Manhattan, heh.
