It has been very interesting looking through negatives from college and exploring my mindset then and the pictures I chose to print at that time. On the same token, after life experiences [and still standing] I still see a connection after all these years. Now the bridging begins from that part of my work until now. After all these years I like the foundation I can work from. I love this one.This watercolor below was my first wc in portraiture. At this point I had painted fire hydrants and a few landscapes, I have the fire hydrant story written somewhere on the blog. Right beneath the painting is the photograph I used from photo class [My picture]. Never try to use someone elses work to work from especially in realism unless you have permission.Before I title any piece I need to look at all the pieces in a series. @ Chuck I have no idea what happened with the cool/warm tones? Maybe this could be named “Emotion”.
