Just For The Fun Of It
This is a half sheet watercolor I did about two years ago. I painted it side by side with a workshop student of mine who wanted to do a portrait of this policeman and give it to him as a retirement gift. We worked from a photograph. He copied my painting steps so that in the end, the gift was HIS finished watercolor. Every time I look at this painting, I smile. Currently, I'm working on a commissioned painting to commemorate the '09 Amgen Tour of California (a race that Lance Armstrong will make his come back in), and a painting of an old farm truck that both I and a very talented Sacramento artist by the name of Terry Miura will be painting (from a photo I snapped two years ago). We have a rough due date of Dec. 15 to get together to compare our painterly efforts. These will be future posts with other stuff coming up in about a week or so.
