There’s something about working on cheap paper…it’s a subliminal thing. Freedom, spontaneity, relaxed shoulders that this is, really and truly, only paper, and not expensive stuff at that! This is done in my trusty sketch book, a square Aquabee multi-purpose paper which I have loved for quite some time (a couple of years at least) for everything from pen, pencil, charcoal, acrylic, and yes, watercolor. This is a portrait of that sweet gal who came and visited us this past spring…a friend of Maddie’s named Angelica (wink, wink). Remember her?
I had several photographs of her visit and the light was pretty good in this one. There’s something about watercolor I swoon over. It’s really like a romance of sorts…from the first swoosh of color to the subsequent ones that oozle into each other…mmmm. Here’s what I love the most from this portrait:
Oooooh…when a girl with beautiful eyes meets watercolor…watch out! So happy with this little portrait. I won’t be so tickled with all 100 portraits, but if there are some good sections, like this one…I’ll be content!
