Latest portrait: a PBS personality based here in Sacramento
This is Rob Stewart, a PBS television personality. Here in Sacramento, he hosts "Rob On The Road". This watercolor painting will be added to my other PBS portraits that hang in the visitor's center at Sacramento's PBS station KVIE. He is an energetic person who has a great deal of empathy and genuine interest for whomever he interviews. I hope that I have captured his character with my color palette, cropping, brushwork, and paint scrubbing. This watercolor was painted on a 140 pound sheet of cold press Arches watercolor paper. It measures 14 by 18 inches.
