Watercolor with touches of gesso on Arches CP 140lb, 9×12?. Reference photo is Sandra‘s grandson, Oliver. The photo she sent me said “Oliver with rainbow,” hence the background :)

woman leaning on her hand watercolor painting

Watercolor on Arches CP 140lb, 9×12. Painted from a picture of my friend’s mom. I feel like I should have left it be around 25 minutes before I actually stopped – but I always want more darks, more depth, more definition. With all that, I lose some of the initial freshness and mood. I guess it’s a very fine balance I need to learn to keep!

On a different note, this blog’s views reached 10,000 yesterday and I’m happy as a true dork :) Thank you to everyone who came and looked at what I am doing here, and especially to those of you who keep coming back for more. You keep me going!
