Five O'Clock Shadow

12x9 watercolor and gouache on Canson 140 lb cold press paper painted today. This rugged handsome fellow's name is Hugh Hill, a WetCanvas artist/courtesy reference image library.  I don't do many portraits and wanted to use a fairly neutral limited palette.  Colors:  UB, quin burnt sienna, indigo, apricot, peachy keen, carbazole violet, halloween orange (last 4 by Cheap Joe's).  Background was left white of the paper. Nice to do watermedia again after a month of inks!
