Sarah's TV Watching Position by 

Watercolour with DickBlick artist colours on Fabriano coldpress 140lb not.
Black ink was also used in this one. Original 11"x 14"

Sarah, as most of you already know, is my youngest granddaughter (age 9).
Both granddaughters just amaze me with their wild contorted positions while watching television. I worked from a photograph is why Sarah is giving me a "put the camera down, " look……lol

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

    I really like your application of ink on this one, Jim….gives it great definition without being overdone. I paid close attention to the hands…they’re one of the hardest things to paint in my opinion, but you really pulled it off….looks perfect. The whole painting is really nice….Sarah must be really proud of her Papa.

  • Sarah’s one of just a small few woman who don’t have a long list of things they would like to change…..LOL Thank you Marsha, that’s a wonderful comment.

    wonderful portrait of Sarah Jim…relaxed and so laid back…and that ‘look’ does send a message indeed… I can see the light from the tv highlighting her pretty face… :)

  • It really was a “Papa can’t you find anything else you want to photograph,” look on her face. Of course I ignored it and took the pic anyway……lol Thank Linda, that was a very kind comment.

    This is just plain cute. I love the natural pose and the roses in her cheeks,

  • It would take another woman to see that as a natural pose….lol. It seems to me that you can find colour in her cheeks most of the time. Thanks so very much Jenny.

    Very nice! Love the outlines.

  • Glad you noticed Sandrine, as I don’t normally use ink outlines in most of my watercolours. Just trying some different looks. Thank you.

    Well, this is what happens when Grandpa is an artist, lol! I think she’ll grow use to it as she gets older, if she already hasn’t. Love the expression Jim, superb work, as always!!!

  • I think they both already believe that they are world famous models… Great comment Bob, thank you.
