This was done for the WDE on WetCanvas from a photo reference supplied by Alain. This is his wife in a photo taken many years ago. The photo was B&W so I played around with the color. I didn't get a great likeness of her.
I have always participated in the visual arts including watercolors, drawing and sketching, pen and ink, and photography. Since retiring from teaching I have devoted much of my time to watercolors, sometimes combining them with pen and ink or collage.
Watercolor is the perfect medium to capture the beauty that surrounds us. I love to travel, and sketch and paint wherever I go. Painting, especially on location, captures the spirit and life of the subject. I hope to continue doing that for a long time to come.
