Cyndi Lauper, 2014, graphite and watercolor, 7 x 5.

Here's the corresponding sketch/drawing which I scanned (for posterity) before applying the color:

Cyndi Lauper, 2014, graphite, 7 x 5.

That's really the first time I have used watercolor for a portrait. The hue is on the reddish side but the reference photo was definitely on the red side too. I guess I am more a graphite guy than a watercolor guy but I am hoping to improve in the near future. This portrait was done to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" album.
