Cute hat

16"x12" portrait of my Grandmother...I never knew her, which may make it easier or harder to do a portrait...I don't know. But I love her hat and fancy wrap...I'm going to paint her some more, maybe with different color combos or closer cropping...we'll see.

Bellissimo ritratto, pieno d'amore.
Bello l'abbigliamento anni 20/30.

Beautiful 1940's sense to this amazing work, Annelein! I'll bet your grandmother would love this.

I am so envious that you were able to attend Ted Nuttall's workshop. It is high on my list of workshops to attend. Your portraits keep getting stronger and stronger.

I like the expression of the face in your portrait. Watercolors with the upper part dark and the lower part where we can still see the white of the paper are among my favorites!
