portrait in progress... or finished portrait.

16x20"original watercolour painting

Well, at our Sunday portrait session at the Don Valley Art Club, a fellow artist wore this lovely scarf over her head. I intended to paint it however, since each sitting is only 25 minutes, I didn't get to it in time. Now I'm not sure if I should paint it. I love the painting as it is. Then again, the scarf was quite beautiful and I have a photo to work. But, it's never the same as from life. Hmmm. Thoughts?

  1. Hi Nora,
    I do love it as it is. The suggestion of the scarf leads me to look at the beautiful rendering of her face, in the actual rendering, colors, lines, etc., but also in the character and spiritual quality that I see in this woman.
    PS I have 3 of your small drawings together on a wall, and a 4th on another wall. Toronto scenes, all, 3 winter scenes. I still love them so much.
