My Baby Sister
I'm working on the last three water color paintings for The Three Sisters Restaurant. This is my little sister Rosaretta Hildago Consuella Cinco De Mayo Lobenberg. She is a member of the Turlock Folklorica California Mexicana Dance Group. I'm quite proud of her! In fact, so is her other older brother, Billy Joe Bob Lobenberg. I started with her head first, because if I failed there and had to start a new painting, I wouldn't have any time invested in the rest of it (i.e. the complicated dress!) The goddess of art fortunately smiled down on me and guided my hand into painting a successful likeness of Rosaretta. I then proceeded to render her dress and complete the painting. Like the other three paintings, this one is on a full sheet of 140lb cold press Fabriano Artistico water color paper.
