Portrait artist paints Self Portrait – watercolor painting by Jessie Rasche

Here is a watercolor self-portrait painting of me and my son walking in the park. I’m going to hang onto this one for a while – maybe keep it for my upcoming show at CHASE gallery. For available paintings, see my art gallery.

Yesterday was so fun. We bought some inflatable swards at Target and found a little alcove and had a nice long sward fight. And then we had a picnic at Rattlesnake ridge. I want to have a picnic again today, but the rain is pretty heavy and cold. Maybe I can talk him into it anyways. 🙂

Portrait artist paints a mom and baby in watercolor

This is my first completed watercolor painting since the workshop I took last weekend with Stan Miller. What Stan taught about composition really resonated with me, and I’ve realized how I can better follow my heart in this area. And more importantly he gave me structure and ideas for evaluating my compositions that I didn’t have. Anyways, can you tell the difference in my composition? What do you think? I’m happy, and I might make a big oil painting from this small work.
