Medium: watercolor
Private collection
This is a portrait of my grandaughter Melisa painted during a workshop demonstration in Sonoma CA.
The image was drawn and painted in transparent watercolor. The same drawing was used as collage. You may see it on the next post.
The workshop challenge was to develop at least three paintings using the same drawing in differant styles.

Collection of the artist

The image of Melisa was reduced and photocopied in black and white. The addition of gesso, cardboard, and paint was used to achieve texture and design.
One drawing, two mediums and two designs created these two paintings.
