watercolor portrait

I am going through a slump.  I have not succeeded at producing anything I wanted to show you until this.  I have spent a couple of days sharing what I know about watercolor and portraiture to two friends and this is the result of talking and demonstrating and painting.  There are things about it that need to be corrected.  I just wish I could see these things prior to declaring it finished because I don’t want to work on it anymore and am ready to move on!

This is watercolour on a piece of Strathmore rough paper, 5.25″x6.5″

Obviously going through a slump in thinking of titles for blog posts, too.

    You have creative slumps. This is good.

    But this is so beautiful, and she is–if not exactly sad–so very melancholy.

    Slump or not, I’m still a fan! I’m sure you will power through this feeling. :p

    I wish I could produce something as grand as you have while in your slump. I think it’s lovely and intriguing just as it is.

    Oh Laurie, Elizabeth said it best and as for titles,well, what’s wrong with yet another work in progress or art in pause? You are so incredibly talented and I am proud to call you my cousin!!
