Day 678 – Happy Mothers Day 

A day early!! I will be traveling on Motjers Day and didn’t want to forget to wish everyone a Happy Mothers Day. 
WIP – Barbara – #300 Arches Hot press watercolor paper 

Barbara was 92 when I took her picture. She was the sweetest lady. Her family misses her a lot. 

I really love all the soft colors under her chin. I think they are delicious. 


Thought you might like to see her evolve. 

This is after two very thin washes. And of course I used Ted Nuttalls Transparent colors.  


The first wash on Lucy June. I forgot to take a pic of Barbara at this stage. 
The thin washes are the key to a painting like this. You can always add more color but it’s hard to remove it. 

Thanks for reading.
