“Hey friend”

Here is my newest watercolor!

Hey friend! (2013)

16 x 20 inches

Watercolor on stretched 140-lb. Arches

This was a fun, yet challenging painting. The original photo was taken by my sister using a digital toy camera, resulting with a very contrasty and gritty picture.  The phrase “Hey friend!” came about because that’s what the random character (me) seems to be saying.  It is now a phrase that my sisters and I still use to greet each other.  There is actually an oil painting sketch of this same picture that I did on cardboard back when I was still in school.

Below are work in progress pictures, because everyone loves WIPs!
