Saturday, Apr. 21, 2007 - Portrait of Jenny

My step-daughter turned 41 on Thursday but we don't get to celebrate with her until next Thursday at lunch. I thought I'd try to paint her from a photo I've had a while. This is on a Clayboard Textured block that is 5" x 7" in size. It works for watercolor and makes good textures that I like. You can lift off but not always back to white - but it's pretty easy to work with and this size works with portraits (glad I bought a pack of 3). This need a bit of tweaking to get it right - the nose, the dimple of the mouth, the shape of the iris/pupil, etc. I'll do more and show it again later.
