Picture a Day #193-Still Life Painting with Model

Here is the photo I took of my still life setup before I began my painting two weeks ago.

I used some artistic license, which is evident in the final version below. I am mostly happy with the results. This is the first painting I have done with professional quality watercolors. It’s kind of like a graduation for me! I have been working hard for the past year to try new techniques and improve my skills, and I see real progress.

There is always room for improvement, though, and I will continue to work on a variety of subjects. Whether I am painting a landscape en plein air or a still life in my dining room, I will continue to use Prismacolor pencils with watercolor paint. This combination works well for me.
