Another portrait...at this point I think it's official that I've found a new favorite subject..the portrait/figure. I can't seem to stop painting them....so you'll have to endure seeing them here on my blog...not giving up on other subjects, though...just a temporary obsession.

This is a small portrait...the paper was 6"x8" and handmade at a small mill in Italy...ofcourse on paper that precious the paintings can't help but turn out good....(wink wink, recognize sarcasm here) I still have some Twinrocker paper from years ago that I'm "saving"...I should just use it...if you think about it..it's cotton pulp and water smooshed into a mold and pressed....hmmm

Warmer climes of times past...but we are in for a b-e-a-u-tiful weekend here in the Northeast. This was a painting done from a photograph of the church in Old Puerto Vallarta it is 12"x12" and done on the "Fluid" watercolor paper. It certainly handles differently than the other papers I'm used to...but always good to experiment with something new.

These ladies were done in the Jeannie McGuire workshop that I took this summer.. Haven't had a chance to explore her techniques since then..but it was fun piling on the pigment...plus using opaque colors and white! I want to give a quick shout out to all the email subscribers who write me on a regular basis! Thanks for your comments!

How long has it been since I posted a feathered friend? A while anyway...well this summer I went to a poultry museum! Over 200 different varieties...my camera was smoking at the end of that visit! So you can be sure that I'll tackle some of those images for future paintings!
