"Man in the Hat"

Not for Sale. I took a one and a half day workshop a couple weeks ago with Joe Fettings. Anyone who has taken his workshop will recognize this guy. The students all painted the same image with the same basic color combinations. We were learning how to lay down layers of watercolors and blend. Even though we all painted the same subject, at the end of the day, we all had different individual paintings. Each person's "style" came through on every version. Fun class, but very exhausting. It's tough bending an old mind in new directions.

Looks a lot better than what it looked a few days ago.. Good girl, now paint a portrait in your own style and of your own subject..
