Cosbin - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 8"x10"

      Just a quick, layered portrait of a Reddit user. I'm pretty happy with how most of this worked. The eye might have gone a little too soft, though. And, of course, the photograph isn't exactly what I want.

Venus - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 8"x10"

      Another little portrait with just the right amount of looseness, though I think I might have softened a few too many edges.

Peterson's Farmall - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 15"x22"

      I took a slightly different approach with this one and made the simplification of details easier on myself. Doesn't hurt that I'm finally trying a half-sheet again. Since I've started photographing my paintings, I can go bigger again for better effect. I haven't done anything larger than 11"x15" in several years.

      This one turned out just about as perfect as I can probably hope to get. There's only one thing I would change. That's pretty good for me.

Birte - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 11"x15"

      A loose portrait that goes directly to the style I've been chasing for a long time.
