Young Girl and Pelican Air

Both of these paintings were done for the WetCanvas Weekend Drawing Event hosted by Bonnie. I hadn't done a portrait in a few weeks so I went for that one immediately. I even did this one larger than I have been doing them. It is about 8 x 10.
"Pelican Air" was done on masa paper with watercolors and ink. I've been wanting to do something on masa paper for a while, so I was experimenting a bit. I have very conflicting instructions on how to paint on masa paper, so I'll have to try the other method too. This is 8 x 10.
