Also Julie

Also Julie   watercolor   12.5 x 10
is so named, as I have, in the past, done another work of a different Julie.  This one, in watercolor, was painted from life with the model sitting two table-widths away from me.  She was painting me.  Facial planes were painted bit by bit, so that the facial features (eyes, nose and mouth) almost end up painting themselves.  It really does require a different way of "seeing", and is sometimes hard for beginning artists to grasp.  It was cold, cold, cold that night.  A few cools were added, as well as some minute details, when the paper was dryer at home.

I am pleased.
