These are two quarter sheet watercolor styles that I will be painting in for a demonstration this coming Saturday at the Western Society of Artists in the San Francisco bay area. I will follow this up in July, by conducting my three-day "California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture" workshop for them. I am always on the lookout for art groups that offer workshops and bring in out-of-state artists. If you know of such groups, please let me know. The top watercolor was first painted with a free-form, full abstract background and the male model was then painted on top to finish the piece. The bottom portrait was done in the same manner with opaque conte crayon added on the face. Using all sorts of different mediums and tools is part of my California Vibe style.
