Vintage Portrait

Watercolor, originally uploaded by Mrs. Shamus Young.

A commissioned portrait of a black and white wedding photo for a wedding anniversary. Payne’s Grey watercolor on white paper.

This was a fun one to do– I always enjoy doing black and white from old portraits– partly because of my fascination with old portraits and partly because painting in Payne’s grey only is refreshing and kind of resets my brain, especially if I have been doing a lot of color paintings.
