Reflections on watercolor and love
It is with great anticipation that I begin each watercolor portrait. I don’t know where it will go but I’ve learned to trust that it can be a place of beauty. I let the energy of my subject, my heart, and the magical fluidity of colors mixing in water determine the trajectory.
For me, it’s all about discovery. I generally start with a photograph. And sometimes the most candid ones can be the most inspirational, as the heart of the subject is there.
I find myself falling a little bit in love with each subject at some point in the process of painting.
FEE: $350 for a custom portrait 8″x10″.
There is an initial $50 payment to commission a portrait.
When the portrait is completed, I will email you a scan of the image for you to approve. If you don’t want the portrait image I send there is no additional charge. If you do approve the painting, after receiving the rest of the fee I will send you the painting and any prints of the image you might want to order.
Watercolor is a fugitive medium. It can fade over time in a room with moderate sunlight. A giclée print of the image can avoid that since the print inks are steadfast over time. You can order multiple prints of the same image in various sizes. A print that is double the size of the original painting will yield a high-quality print. In a digital image for giclée, corrections can be made image that cannot be made in the unforgiving medium of watercolor. Please contact me for print prices and any other questions you may have.
