Karin Jurick Challenge...Portrait Exchange



At the end of each year Karin Jurick has a portrait exchange for her blog followers. 180 people are participating this year. Very fun to see what everyone paints. This is the portrait I created from the photo reference at the right. You can see the others on Karin's blog

I only paint in watercolor so I love how you "did your own thing" with color. Very fresh and spontaneous, as watercolor should be! I look forward to next year's portrait challenge.
