It's very hard to control and it's different than painting with acrylics. I'm not sure what the right way is to paint with watercolors, but I've been starting with a very diluted very light black and sort of work my way to the darker colors. Takes a lot of patience...which I don't have as seen here and below.
The painting above is of one of my muses, Natalie Portman and the one to the right is of the Rocketeer.
In the photo reference I was using for Natalie her right eye is covered in shadow and I rendered it as so, but looking at it now I should have added a bit of highlight in there. I think I'll keep practicing with it from time to time though acrylic is still my comfort zone.
