The Beaded Shawl
Painting - Pastel On Toned Watercolor Paper
My version of the portrait supplied by Shan Peck for a contest he created for Fine Art America. The background is watercolor paper that I toned with Quinacridone Gold and Burnt Sienna paint. After the paint dried, I painted the girl with pastels.
I like to do photo-realism, but I prefer to paint with emotion. That comes through most of my pieces through the colors I choose and the sweep of my brush strokes. This time, however, it is in the eyes and the welcoming golden color.
