I really wanted to create a pretty purple galaxy background, and this scene from Guardians of the Galaxy gave me that, and the opportunity to attempt two watercolor portraits. I find watercolor to be the trickiest medium to do portrait work in. A good portrait requires very specific shading and shading transitions, and these can be highly difficult to control with watercolor. At least they are for me. But I was surprised by how well this entire painting came out!
