Hawaiian watercolor goddesses, work process

Hi Irina

Thank you so much for another inspiring class! You made drawing faces in profile so easy with the thirds-rule!

I'm planning to create my 2019 wallpapers around the topic of Hawaiian goddesses. Here are the pencil drafts:

I scanned these drafts and started working on them digitally with my iPad Pro and the Procreate app to get a sense of what colors I could use:

I don't have a lightpad at the moment, so I used a window to follow your advice of transferring the draft onto the watercolor paper :-)

Finally, painting time!

Volcano/Fire goddess Pele, using liquid watercolors. I love how they explode into each other which was an effect I wanted for the hair, but boy, lifting the paint is difficult.

Moon goddess Hina, using liquid watercolors for the skin and aloha watercolors for the moon & hair. I wanted the moon to shimmer, so I used one of my metallic paints.

So far Hina and Pele are finished:
