Watercolor 12 x 16
I took a break from oil painting this summer and attended Hanna Adler's watercolor workshop. It has been several years since I last touched watercolor and I was excited to get back to it. After several lessons on wash and design elements, I finally get to paint a portrait from a photo of my grandson. Hanna's approach emphasis on building shapes with layers of transparent colors, reveal the light and shadow by color temperature. That's a lot to digest and apply the knowledge to real painting. This is my third try for the same painting.

  1. Lovely work, May. I especially like the lost edges here and there. What a professional looking piece considering you were just getting back into watercolor! Paint on!
