Weekly Face on Weds #6

I started by glueing old book pages into my sketchbook.

I then used white acrylic to blank most of it out. I only painted lightly so that the text could still be seen, and I left some words unpainted (at random)

Then I sketched out a face..

and started to block in with watercolours..

I added more colours..

and then because these were watercolours over an acrylic base they aren't set in place, so I took a damp babywipe and dabbed some of the paint away. I then sprayed the page with hairspray to set it. 

Not entirely convinced that I like this one. I am a complete novice when it comes to watercolours, and I really have no clue what I am doing with them. However, it was never meant to be a masterpiece so I shall call it done and move on.
