15 minute 9" x 12" water color study done for my Academy of Art Students/San Francisco.  The study is done with some dry brush but mostly wet on wet technique and was done to show them how to build a painting through warm/cool (raw umber/ultramarine blue) layering. Towards the end I also tossed in some cadmium red and viridian green. And, yup, it's supposed to be a self portrait.  There are some (and I won't name names but my bonus son Joe is standing nearby) who don't think it looks like me! I'm outwaged, I tell you! Outwaged!! ;) Water color, 2009.
