|Martha - 12/14/13 - Week 1, Watercolor on Paper, 9"x12"|
The model for this session was Martha. I just drew her over at Leeward Community College on Sunday.
I decided to do something a little different for this set of poses: Every week I will do a completed watercolor of the scene and move around the studio week to week.
I was all ready to do a watercolor painting today, When I got into town and looked at my things, I had forgotten my watercolors in the car. Luckily, Fishers was nearby and had a sale on watercolors. The colors were a little off, but they are doing what they need to.
The background is a landscape quilt Billy has put up behind her.
I am pretty happy with this painting. Beside the problems with the color mentioned, it still is pretty strong. It is a very good portrait of Martha.
