The Red Hat #1
Image Size 7.5" x 11"
I think I've found a new series. I've had several photos of my friend Beverly in this red hat for many years and as with last week's painting of my daughter, I was too intimidated to try painting her. This really doesn't look like her, but I'm still happy with this painting. I'm really enjoying painting portraits much more than I thought I would. Maybe I've found a new calling....
This was done on 200# Waterford paper which I really like. It has a soft surface and that little bit of extra weight really makes a difference. I didn't know I had any left so I was pleasantly surprised when I found this little piece. I painted most of this on saturated paper and finished the details once it dried.
