Watiq' Oniq' On

 
Watiq' Oniq' On 17" x 13" watercolor
 
Did I mention the love/hate aspect of painting hair?  I love the way it turns out in the end and though I don't hate painting it, it is time consuming to layer colors upon colors without making it look overworked.  I really like the perspective of portraits when they are turning away from you, tricky not to make it flat or look like they're in full profile.

Tiny Dancer

 
"Tiny Dancer"  10" x 8" watercolor
 
I love watching the smaller kids learn the dances at powwows.  So cute and fun to watch them walk around and try out the steps that more accomplished dancers are showing them.

This Little Piggy Went to Market 4

I rarely paint fruit so I thought it would be a good time to try it again, I love the color of these pears and the taste even more so! 

 
My favorite molcajete is always fun to use and painting the texture is a good challenge for brush techniques.  I've said it before and will say it again, I have no tricks up my sleeve, just good ole' fashioned straight forward painting.
