Katie 1

Took pictures of Katie (who has the most wonderful red hair) and painted the first of (I hope) many portraits of her.  Actually, I did one of her and her mother when she was a tiny baby, so this is the second, or maybe the third.  I tried to be loose, but it is hard to be loose.  Looked at Charles Reid’s Painting  Portraits in Watercolor for inspiration but I am just not able to let go!  I think the more you paint, the more able you are to let the pigment flow!  Wish I were able to paint more, but now is the time for architecture.
