As I was unpacking I found several paintings I did last year that I had not shared on my site. I was very busy last fall and I have many, many paintings to show for it. This is one of them, its a water colour painting I did as a test page for a book idea I had. After completing the piece I realized it was far too tedious and mature for what I wanted.
This is a detail of the face, I tried to keep things relatively simple but the medium doesn’t lend itself to simplicity when I work with it.
