Pearl Earrings #9 - watercolor

watercolor, 2019
nfs, 11"x15"

      Another portrait of my beautiful bride, toying with abstracting the unimportant parts of the subject. Only the focal point really needs detail and realism. Everything else can be loose and suggestive.

Desert Blue - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 11"x15"

      Nice value contrast. Nice foreshortening. I like how the color contrast worked out between the manganese and phthalo blues and the burnt sienna/umber reds. My favoritest part is that highlight just behind the headlight. I don't know if I could do that again on purpose if I had to.

Lily B - watercolor

watercolor, 2018
available, 8"x10"

      A little portrait/figure with a fade/paper-doll effect. I also played with some softer edges to a nice effect.
