Well.... at least I like the hat.

 

 

 

Dogged determination. I see thats what its gonna take. That and practice practice practice.... and then practice some more.

I adore the reference photograph... and I like the initial sketch (2nd attempt). And I can say I like how the hat turned out in the painting... but it all went down hill from there. Call me psychic cause I see lots and lots of attempts to get what's in my head down on watercolor paper in my future.

We won't be keeping track of the temper tantrums, though.

Okay I'm back..Now, that's a different technique I haven't seen you do (it seems to me). I like this a lot. You definitely got a good drawing going on. You did wonderful on the hat..just great!!! So glad you decided to do this. Now....will you do me...?!?!?! I have a young one somewhere..ooops..how bold..forget it...but if you want to...

My attempt at Laura is growing on me. It is turning into a "nice try" which is much better than when I first finished it, I'll tell ya that!!

Either post a picture of yourself or email it to me and I'll give you a try. Its a way of making sure I keep at it... you know, practicing. Just don't have a preconceived notion about it cause it will never turn out that way. A crone's life time of experience.

I like the style you did this in and that hat is so good I feel like I could reach out and grab it and put it on my head. One of these days I really hope to have time to get my hand in paints again! Thanks for doing this!
