Symphony in Shadows



This watercolor painting is 4" by 6 " and was painted on Arches 140 lb watercolor paper.  It is an original painting.  It is unusual of me to paint a portrait without very much face showing. 

The afternoon shadows are lengthening and she must be on her way ...

Is she leaving home to go out to meet someone, or is she arriving home after meeting them? There is definitely a story behind this woman. I really like the different way you have portrayed your subject.
