Watercolor: Independence Day

Independence Day 5.5 x 9 Watercolor on Bristol paper
This is a revision of a painting done in the summer. I like it better now, and I look forward to doing a larger version of it sometime this summer. The nuance of the human face – especially a young, on-the-verge-of-adulthood face, always speaks to me and kicks up the urge to paint.

    Your work is fantastic, you have captured her so beautifully . I wish I could paint like that. You have a beautiful gift. This is a real master, her eyes are alive.
    If you were close I’d love to take some lessons.

    I just love the colors and the textures. It has a “moody” feel to it… sort of like a teenager!

    Hi Belinda,

    I feel the same way about young faces on the verge of growing up. So moving, like looking at flowers.

    Great painting.
