Work in Progress with Watercolors

This painting is a result from a online workshop taken on WetCanvas, under the figure channel (link here).
The workshop´s objective was to create a fair decent figure painting based on photographies provided by channel moderator, so artists could represent them using their media of choice. Very nice works under these workshops in a great amount of techniques explained.
This is my attempt with watercolors. Bellow you will find my step by step process.
