The Bride

Watercolor (opaque and transparent) on illustration board.  36"x22".

A portrait of my new sister-in-law in her wedding dress.  I experimented with opaque watercolors because I wanted to get a true deep black for the background.  This black is a mix of Payne's Grey and Yellow Ochre.  I also used opaque Titanium White for the veil.
