I did two portrait sessions on Tuesday. First I did Marge (below and now showing) in the morning. I also belong to the Wet Paints Studio Group which meets in Sayville. They do portraits twice a month on Tuesday evenings. I always say I am going, but then I don't get out the door. I promised a friend I would show up this week and I'm glad I did.
I didn't get this lovely model's name, but she sat as still as a statue.
This is 5 x 7.


  1. Joan this looks wonderful. Do you lightly sketch with pencil first and then add watercolor?
    I can see where you capture the shadows on one side of her face. This certainly has to be so worthwhile. Hope you have a great Easter my friend.

  2. Thanks, Debbie. I sketch in pencil first...and my eraser comes in very handy. lol

  3. This is a strong portrait, with lovely shading.
    Happy Easter xx
