I have always liked "unfinished" paintings like the top image. This top image is the start of "Amando". In the second image, I continued to paint in color and eat into my initial "unfinished" look. The third image is now totally painted in and of course no longer has an unfinished look. My final stage will include some jazzy colored conte crayon line work. I shall post the finished watercolor soon. Dear reader - what is your opinion on this painting? Would love to hear from you.
