Joan Crawford portrait in watercolor

Joan Crawford
daily painting #30
8x8" watercolor on 140lb cold press paper

One of the best things about painting with watercolour is:

The Happy Accident!

Yes, I love them. 

I had mapped out this portrait with the plan to use "puddles" of watercolor for the hairstyle.  So that much was planned.  
What I didn't plan for was spilling my bottle of Cobalt Violet liquid watercolor!
But I worked with what I had, and voila!

Happy accident = drama and excitement.
