Amber – Watercolor

Click on image to zoom in

Well, I had a little break in the action last night and even though I several commissioned paintings to start, I had very little time for a major project, so I found this photo of Amber that I had wanted to paint for awhile now and this is the end result. Amber does amazing photography and is creative in all that she does. A lot of her photos to me have this rich look to them and I didn’t capture exactly what I was hoping for, but I hope she approves. She has beautiful skin and the rich colors and at terns of the cloth draping her brings a wonderful contrast. Thank you Amber for allowing me to paint from a beautiful photo of yours!

This is all watercolor on Crescent hot pressed  illustration board. The image is 5 1/2″  x  8″

  7. Wow. What I like most about this is the line work of the entire composition. My eye twists and turns to take it all in. The attention to detail in the dress is amazing!
