Girl Touching Hair - work in progress

This is an oil painting on canvas board that I've been working on. It's a work in progress. I was going in one direction, then decided to go in another direction. I decided to go for a blue look. I'm not sure what else I'll do with it.


I had a bunch of tubes of watercolor paint that I've bought here and there at different art stores/expos, but I wasn't using them because I like to use portable palettes. So, I found this palette where I could squeeze whatever paints I wanted in the wells, close it up and go. Some of the paints in other palettes had colors I would never use. I wish it had a few more wells because I didn't have space for Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber, but I have a small Winsor & Newton palette that has those, so if I plan on using them I'll just carry that palette with me. Otherwise, I just use the Van Dyk Brown that I have on this one.
