day eighty-seven

another thanksgiving-inspired post... although i didn't take many pictures on thanksgiving this year, here is one i did take. it's of my great-grandmother (NanNan) after we had finished eating and we were all sitting around chatting.

for this painting, i did not sketch her out like i usually do with my paintings. it was a little experiment inspired by a conversation i had with my older sister. she simply asked if i draw before i paint, which i normally do, so i decided to challenge myself a little. just keeping things interesting....
3x5" watercolor

  1. i really like this. i like the off-center pose, i like the pink & grey tones, & i love the expression on her face... very elegant & intriguing.
