A portrait for Paint Party Friday

I managed to paint for a little while on Wednesday, despite my mysterious back pain. This isn’t finished, because I couldn’t sit at my art desk for very long, but I thought it was far enough along to show. His name is Mike and he is the son of last week’s WDE host. Handsome guy, isn’t he? Watercolor, 9×12, but cropped a bit by my scanner. I didn’t bother to stretch the paper first, so of course it buckled. Shame on me for being lazy. But I painted, so I’m happy! Please do visit the other Paint Party Friday participants. It’s always a fun party!

    Pooyah – that is awesome! Can see the buckling, and really like the crop. It just works.

    Take it easy and feel better!

    What a great portrait! I love that he has his flat cap and rain mac on and looks a little cross even!! I hope your back pain goes as mysteriously as it came.

    I could use a lesson from you on flesh. I painted my self portrait last night with pan watercolors and now I’m a pink little piggy! Ugh. Too late to do anything about it now I guess. Live and learn. Fabulous painting.

    Happy Mother’s Day Weekend and PPF!
