Day 25: 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Day 25:  This is a transparent watercolor loosely based on a photograph from the Paint My Picture website - I have taken many liberties and have not really tried to do this as a realistic portrait, but to depict emotion and feeling not really in the original photograph.
This painting  is 9" x 7" and  is painted on 120 lb. printmaking paper in two colors - sepia and burnt sienna.

Barbara, you continue to wow me.

The use of these two colors is just beautiful together.

And, you certainly nailed emotion!!

Donna - Thank you so much for the nice comments. I see that you are going to have a series of portrait classes at Hayner...if I live closer, I'd come!
Hope the shingles are all gone!!!
Love ya!
