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.
