Lobenberg Selfie


Yes, a little goofy or as my Engish aunt use to say "a little airy fairy", but it's all me. This painting was started during a watercolor portrait demonstration at the Folsom Arts Association in California. I didn't get too far into it then, but over the last two days, completed the job. It is about 90% watercolor, 15% conte, and 5% Caran d' Ache. I titled this selfie "Pleasant Thoughts".

So great. I love seeing all of these paintings of your face. Wonderful work. This expression seems to capture who I imagine you to be, funny, super talented and kind.

Let's hope this little message gets to you.

Your fan in hot old Toronto,

Barbara

FABULOUS portrait David. Love the vibrancy of tone, and especially the angle...you look like you had fun painting it.

Barbara, my Toronto bloggy bud! In actuality, I'm an uncouth boor with a belligerent manner. No?

Sally - I often listen to Indian and middle eastern music to get my motor running. That with watching the watercolor flood is mesmerizing. I'm always stone sober. Gotta be to watercolor! Thanks for your comment Sally... always welcomed!
