This is the finished painting of the bride. It's a tight, descriptive painting and therefore doesn't need much in the way of explanation. My next post will be of the portrait conference. After that, I will be taking a much needed sabbatical. Am I going to study historical figures in portrait art? Maybe dabble in techniques of the Masters? Try a new, more challenging medium? (As if watercolor isn't challenging enough.) Nope, I'm going to clean my house and work in the yard. I plan to come back to painting with a renewed sense of excitement and direction, as well as a clean house!
