This is one I am proud of. Did I do this? I hope Sam's mama likes it as much as I do. I just couldn't let this one go....I wanted it to be right and spent the afternoon just letting the watercolor lead me into the painting process. I think the "it's just paper" and "don't make it such a big deal" has worked here....aside from being a loose control..always in control! LOL

    Hi Marta: I'm sorry I missed you at Elin's. I was actually there that day, just earlier. I like this portrait very much . . . Looking forward to meeting you sometime. It's nice to see another watercolorist doing plein air.

  10. This is truly wondeful. Your friend will love it, and you should be really proud.
