Here's something I've been working on for a little while now, let me tell you, when you want to grow and learn, there's nothing like trying something totally new.
"Tricky" isn't the word I'd use for this one, more like "I hope this works!" Such an odd angle, unusual colors I had to mix and mostly low key values and not to mention the layers and layers and then more layers to get just the right walrus skin tones.
I think it came out pretty nice, I'm definitely going to try something like this again.
I had a great experience giving a portrait demo at Guy Magallanes' fantastic space today. Met some pretty terrific people who I hope I've inspired to try out portrait painting.
In a couple of weeks I'll be teaching the portrait workshop there and cannot wait! This is gonna be fun!
(There's still some space available and I'd love to meet you!)

"Pod Peep-L!" 10.5" x 8" Watercolor by Pablo
"Hope Springs Eternal" 6"x6" Watercolor by Chris Beck
Well well well, I swore off painting peeps this year but when I was looking at chocolate, er, I mean fruits and veggies at the store, I heard them calling me and lured me into yet another challenge painting and I imediately pushed. . I mean asked my dear friend Chris Beck to accept the challenge. :0)
So, did you ever see that movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"? I didn't but I know all about it from another movie that I absolutely love. . "Big Business" where Lily Tomlin and Bette Middler are twins switched at birth. The moment they find out they see their twins, Bette Middler shouts out "It's Pod People!" apparently, she believes that aliens have cloned them in a "pod" and that's what gave me the idea for my peeps. . . . those bunz are still trying to take over the peep world!My blog is doing all sorts of crazy things today so I haven't been able to link Chris's Blog here. . .so please check her blog out by clicking her name that you'll find on the list of blogs to the right. I'll try to get this resolved soon.

I had the great honor of being invited back for another portrait workshop for the Watercolor Connection group!
I so admire the camaraderie of these women and I truly appreciated hearing their stories during lunch (not to mention the chocolate cookies!)
