Me in Watercolor, Oh, Yeah!

I took the watercolor a bit farther to try a self portrait sketch.  One of the items on Scavenger Hunt 562  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1455908

Number 2, portrait - Me except I'm older, fatter, etc.

I could probably add some ink and perk it up a bit and cover some of the lack of expertise.

Class today and will have these practice pieces critiqued and have some questions answered.  Poor Pomona!  I hope to do another quick landscape for the Scavenger Hunt today.

The plein air group is meeting this morning out at 9-E Ranch with Joan Bohls.  I wimped out, it is just too wet.  My plan was to do the landscape there.  It is a beautiful setting.  There is a B & B there if you ever want a weekend of solitude with pine trees, minature horses and donkeys and other animals.  http://www.9eranch.com/joan-bohls-art.html

I recognize that lady! Watercolor portraits are very difficult. I keep trying, but I'm never quite satisfied with mine.

Thanks, Jennifer Rose. I guess you can tell it is me, like in a bad mirror. Ha.

Bag Blog, thank you. I'm not very good at seeing faces to draw them. Self portraits are not easy. We always show the concentration I think. I'm happy to not be a portrait painter!
