Happy New Year, in watercolor

The year has started with a pile of resolutions, but none that can’t be attempted. I’d like to figure out a way to start making a consistent side-income, and this looks as good as any. It will require practice, but these are the first of the “Friends’ Portraits”, and they have been well-received by the subjects and our friends.

This is a departure for what I normally do in this medium and the medium that I normally do portraits in. I am quite comfortable working with a dry medium for this subject. It’ll be a few more attempts before the portraits get the color-vibrancy that my cars have, for example.

These two cars were completed right before Christmas.

Please feel free to contact me if you have a subject that you would like rendered in watercolor. There will be more examples to come.

 

 

Holiday Silliness

I am waiting for the first real contributions. The snow is falling at a fairly appreciable rate. And, well, these ornaments are just hanging here 🙂
