This is a water color portrait I just finished today. Stacy was an art rep. for me here in the Sacramento area until she took on a more lucrative job selling for a major medical drug company. Before she left, She graciously posed for me so I could use the photos as reference material for my water color portrait workshops. I teach both black and white to get my students started after which they graduate to a full color workshop. This was painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold press water color paper approximately 12"X17". The good news is that it takes me about an hour to complete a portrait this size. The bad news is that water color paintings cannot be corrected very well, so if you blow it, you have to toss it and start all over again. This is the challenge of working in water color!
