Cathie's terrific Tut
From time to time the Aquarellistas work on a project that is meant to show the different styles, the variation in colour use and composition. We do that by working on the exact same subject and see what happens. In this case it was the golden mask of 'King Tut' of ancient Egypt, who was a pharaoh for 10 years until his death at age 19, around 1324 B.C. Very inspiring for us, this 'boy king', as you can see.
The watercolours are amazing, all of them, with their different expressions and interpretation - yet they have the youth and beauty in common!
Same guy, different version - with a lot of character! by Vanessa.
Marina went for a mild look and also took just a part of the face.
