Day 3 of 3/5 day art challenge

For the third day of my 3/5 day art challenge, I thought I would share some pastel portraits I have done through the years. These are some of my favorite people.

Day 2 of 3/5 art challenge

Day 2 of the 3/5 day art challenge has me going back to 2007 to find some paintings I did inspired by vintage photographs. I used white to make some of the colors to layer over others. These were done after a workshop I took by Jeannie McGuire.

3/5 Day Facebook Challenge

My first of the 3/5 day Facebook challenge. I am posting three paintings from when I started full time as an artist in 2005. I was exploring watercolor surfaces, still learning color, technique and painting subjects that are close to me. 
Picnic Conversation- Watercolor on Gessoed paper was fun and easy to lift but hard to layer. Kind of like painting on Yupo but with texture. This is of my grandfathers who dressed in a suit for most occasions. Kind of miss those days...
Elizabetha, Watercolor on coldpress is a story of my Grandmother's life. So sorry I sold this but happy that so many connected to this.and 
John's Dad, Watercolor on Coldpress done for my sister's father-in-law who loved to share his music.
