Dürer Watercolor Study

For my figure painting class, we were given an assignment to do a color study painting of a photocopy of either a Michelangelo drawing or an Albrecht Dürer drawing. I decided to use the Dürer image that our teacher assigned, and I worked in watercolors to force myself to practice. My watercolor skills are kind of weak, but I want to get better, so I figured that this homework assignment would be beneficial. We were also supposed to focus on using warm and cool lighting in the color scheme. I was pretty happy with the way this came out, considering this is the first time I've attempted color portraiture with watercolors. The painting measures approximately 11" x 14".
