Three recent watercolor portraits

All three watercolor portraits were painted on 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, 11 by 15 inches in size. The black gentleman was painted mostly wet-on-wet in about thirty minutes. The gentleman holding the camera was painted mostly wet-on-dry over the coarse of three days in one to two hour sessions. The female subject was watercolored equally wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry over two days in about one hour sessions. I teach three to five day portrait workshops both in California and out-of-state. Please contact me at with inquires. My next "California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture" workshop is scheduled for October 12 to 15 for the Dixie Watercolor Society in St. George, Utah.

David, the progression of photos is amazing. Love especially the middle piece and the last. Oh to have those drawing skills!

Superb David,

I so love your colour and style. I wish I could
be two places at once, but I will be in Italy, or
en route while you teach this course.

Have a wonderful time, and your lucky students!

Your fan in the,

Crimson - Glad you like these. I don't often do much wet-on-wet. These were fun.

Barbara Muir - Italy is great but that en route part sucks! At least my en route from Sacramento to Las Vegas (then a shuttle bus to St. George) is only an hour and fifteen minutes.
