woman leaning on her hand watercolor painting

Watercolor on Arches CP 140lb, 9×12. Painted from a picture of my friend’s mom. I feel like I should have left it be around 25 minutes before I actually stopped – but I always want more darks, more depth, more definition. With all that, I lose some of the initial freshness and mood. I guess it’s a very fine balance I need to learn to keep!

On a different note, this blog’s views reached 10,000 yesterday and I’m happy as a true dork :) Thank you to everyone who came and looked at what I am doing here, and especially to those of you who keep coming back for more. You keep me going!

Watercolor on Arches CP 140lb, 9×12″. Photo reference: Angel Zhang of Julia Kay’s Portrait Party. Yeah…not very happy with this one. Overkill.

I worked on it while at my booth during a local event yesterday. People really like watching somebody paint (I do, too) and I’m getting used to the pressure of somebody looking over my shoulder. It’s not that bad when you space out and ignore the world outside of your painting (which I do anyway, regardless of spectators).
