D Niece. D Nephew. Watercolor on Yupo, 7x10 inches
This little painting is painted from photos I took of my nephew and niece, probably 3 years ago now. I stole, (err. . . borrowed) BMW's red wagon (BMW- the other nephews, Ben, Mitchell, and Will) and hauled it to a family reunion.
Amongst, the "It's hot", "I'm hungry", "It's heavy", "Are we done yet?", I got a few photos.
This painting looks very washed out on my monitor. But I combined two photos as I couldn't get a perfect one. I wish I could get more detail in Retta's face. It's mostly in shadow, and she has no neck, it's just impossible to capture detail without it sliding all over the place. It would be easier if it was a larger painting. Click on the images and they should enlarge. You can see what I am talking about- the detail in her face.
