Watercolour Portrait Timelapse (2 Colour Challenge!)

I came across an interesting photo on Pinterest the other day so decided to paint it! I was running low on paint, so I stuck with my tubes of primary colours, using only blue and red (and a tiny bit of black and white). Sometimes using a limited colour palette helps because you don’t spend as much time mixing and blending, and can jump right in with the painting. Also, I don’t normally work in larger scale, so this was good practice. I used Arches cold pressed watercolour paper for this piece, and for the paint I used Opus essentials watercolours.

Here’s what I used for reference:

Here’s the final result:
