Today was the first day of a 2-day watercolor portrait workshop taught by Lorelle Bacon in the River Arts District in Asheville. I was able to complete 2 paintings, and I am quite pleased with the results.
This morning we did a painting of an American Indian painting some pottery. The original picture was in grayscale, so each of us colored him a bit differently.
This afternoon we did another painting. This one was from a color photograph. Just looking at this precious face made me smile.
To be honest, I did not think I could successfully complete a watercolor portrait. Just the thought of attempting it seemed daunting. Now I am looking forward to attempting another portrait tomorrow.
I will be sure to post the results...
