Watercolor portrait painted on a half sheet of Saunder's 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. About four hours of hard (but challenging and fun!) work.

My latest 11 by 14 inch (quarter sheet) watercolor portrait. I am preparing to conduct one of my California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture Workshops this summer for the Western Society of Artists in the San Francisco Bay area.

In my pen and ink art class that I teach at Sacramento City College, we studied the work of illustrator Ralph Steadman of "Fear and Loathing in Ls Vegas fame. I took out my crow quill pen and bottle of ink and did a demo. Had no idea how my effort was going to turn out, but I had fun doing it. Oh, and I also used the tip of my fore finger for the dark areas in the hair, face, and around the beard.
