Thank you so much, Dan for sending the photos of your portraits together. This made my day.

Color sketch for a larger portrait painting
I’m doing some portraits to push my skills and process. A lovely friend and her daughter modeled for me for the color sketch, so that I could get their skin color right when working larger. When I only have an hour and a half to get my colors right, I set up my pallet completely differently. 3 convenience browns and no warm blue… I think I’ll stick with that pallet for the larger portrait.

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.
