Head of David

11x7.5 watercolor on Fabriano 140 lb rough, a study of Michelangelo's David done before I get a larger head in charcoal done on a half sheet.  From my photos at Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas, I will visit there again in November and also the flamingos at the Hilton for more references.  This one was done today with a limited palette of quinacridone burnt orange, ultramarine blue, and permanent rose.  I tried to get the granite stone texture as well as lose some edges.
