9″ x 12″ watercolor on paper

40's High School Hairdo

I imagined the colors because this was from a black and white photo–but kept them soft and sweet. Like Mom!

…or something like that.

I’d never tried painting on an unprimed canvas before. Automatic frame for a 4″ x 6″ mini portrait, in oil.

One of these days, I’ll make a selfie.

8″ x 10″ watercolor on vellum Bristol

Fun with Color!

8″ x 10″ oil sketch from online reference. I wonder if the people who pop up when you search “photographic portrait image” realize they are on there?

Lady Somewhatlikemary

7″ x 10″ watercolor on paper
I don’t usually splash on the opaques, but they seemed appropriate in this sketch, and not entirely out of place with the transparents of her skin and coat.

An Older Sketch, Revisited

I don’t know. I just still like this semi-cartoonish colored pencil portrait sketch.
