Painting My Father

"Dad in His First New Suit"
Watercolor on Paper, 16x24", c. Catherine Vines

Not only was this his first new suit, it came equipped with a second pair of pants. Those were the days.
My older brother and I frequently argue whether Dad had red hair or nor. Guess which side of the equation I come down on.
I loved painting watercolor portraits. I like the combination of realistic features in an abstract setting. Eventually I hope to aim for that in my oil portraits.

  1. I really like this painting, Catherine! Very sensitive handling of the features and good choices on what you've left undone.
