Watercolour: The Shadow Waltz

I've had such a lot of work on lately that I haven't had time (or the energy) to do anything else, but last night I sent off a completed project, and as my day hadn't been all that fabulous, I decided that I could allow myself a little time to splash around with my watercolours. 

So, Ruby Keeler, from a screenshot of the beautiful Busby-Berkeley-choreographed "Shadow Waltz" from Gold-diggers of 1933. That's one of my favourite 30s musicals, and one of my favourite Berkeley numbers. 

 I used five colours only for this: my favourite Paynes Grey, Neutral Tint, Permanent Mauve, Rose Dore and Permanent Carmine. 
I also used masking fluid, although it and I never get on particularly well....

Winsor & Newton watercolours and masking fluid on mysterious un-branded watercolour paper. I used a straw to shove the paint around a bit and a tiny bit of white acrylic for a couple of touch-ups. 
1.5 hours.
