A Home Portrait and A Special Mother's Day Gift...

A couple more portraits found their way home in the last few of weeks!  For Mother's day, this beautiful watercolor portrait of a mother and newborn baby...


I also shipped out this multi-media portrait of a house, painted on panel.  The request was for lots of color - and an understanding that I am not very good at drawing straight lines :)


This was one of my favorite spots on the painting!


I don't often accept commission work for house/architectural portraits, but I really enjoyed this one!  

And of course our figure drawing group is still active, enjoying our Wednesday evenings with wonderful live models.  Last week I created this nupastel drawing of the male model on grey pastel board


I have had requests to show more progress shots, so hang tight...I will do a post on the progress of my pastel figures - soon!

The mother and baby picture is exquisite. What a beautiful yellow in the house you painted.

Both the houses are wonderful. Really, who needs to have straight lines? No one moves in straight-lines or follows straight lines - so I'm a fan of the wave-y line. Great colour too. Fantastic work
