Water Color Portrait of Canyon


Whew! Getting a realistic image with watercolor can be a challenge. I just posted this on Cindy Ellison Art, my facebook page and described it as a mixed media: blood, sweat and tears with a little watercolor 8-)

Year of retouching photographs have helped hone my face-painting skills but they are never totally easy.

The best part of the portrait was making my son-in-law very happy on his birthday. He said it was one of the best birthday gifts he had ever received.
