Noah – "Learning to Fly"

19 Sep

This is a painting long in the making – I started it forever ago and just finished it this week. I had Noah painted on the swing – painted some of the grass – and finally went in for the face.  Normally I would have started with  his little face – and if that didn’t work out for some reason – well, I would either start over or move on.

This is a painting of the little boy next door – and he is adorable.  I showed the painting to his Grandmother and she turned all red and welled up – you know you have captured the essence of the person when you get a reaction that profound! The painting will be hers!

This watercolor is painted on Arches 300lb paper 12″ x 15″.
