A sealed thought by jane-beata A sealed thought by jane-beata
Updated version ♥

First day of 31 day painting challenge, 1st of "People & Portraits" topic! I've sketched this down already a couple of days ago when I was getting back to my eye studies. One of my friends here on DA and I were discussing our favorite colors and we agreed we can't resist the grey blue & dark grey combination, and for me personally it works the best with just a bit of red. Was this a coloring exercise, than? No, I was sure of colors before I started to paint, but there is never enough practice when it comes to watercolor spontaneous behavior and layering. This was two or three, took me 3 hours.

There are many ways to "abstractize" a portrait or a face part. It's what interests me very much and I am not done experimenting (:

I hope you like the painting, tomorrow I might get a bird involved with someone's face! :frail:

Wow, your work really does reflect, the title.  Moody tones colors with the splash  of red. Leaves me thinking if there's pain behind the thought. Fantastic!

It's very graphic in design, good control of colors, good use of white space!
