Watercolor study
Old Lady with Red Hat
14"x11"
I am getting a little rusty, after a long time spent without painting...life feels empty even as I am busy with a lot of things..just because there has been no painting!
This is a study to begin all over again...I hope you all are doing good...

    1. Hello Nanda and thank you very much.I like painting and drawing wrinkled faces as they have so much to tell!As for workshop, I don't feel ready yet, I will do it only when I have perfected my techniques.I am still working on it.

    1. Thank you so much, Sharon.This portrait was done from a TV grab, which was not a sharp picture- still it captures the spirit and I am glad that it does.

    1. Thank you, Kathryn :) I call this a 'study' because the reference picture was quite small and I could not see all the details.It would have made a terrific portrait if I had a good reference.Still I am glad it came out good enough to share here.

  4. Fabulous job, Arti. The work with her skin is unparallelled. She reminds me a bit of Mildred Natwick.
