Watercolor Portrait Painting Demonstration by Kelly Eddington: Emily

This is a watercolor of Emily (my sister), the star of the Beauty Broadcast YouTube channel. This video shows the first 70 minutes of work on her face.
What you see on most of her face is just under-painting. Today I concentrated on darkening her eyes, nose, and mouth, so those features really pop against her much-too-light skin. This is about 1/4 of the whole painting, which will include her massive collection of makeup. :)

There is intentionally no audio, so imagine episodes of This American Life playing while I work.
