Liquid Watercolour on Sanded Paper..

I just started working with sanded paper this week and I love the effects I can create with liquid colour on it…I certainly plan to use it again….

Portraits with Meaning" is a part of my general portrait gallery called “Significant Faces”…
Inspired by life in general, they all have something to say whether it be through music, verse, or story…most are pictured looking inwards, introspective, mulling over thoughts, and fears, sometimes joy…..real life…
Although they are fairly realistic, I want the hand of the artist to show, so I use unusual colours, techniques, lighting, and supports….
I hope you are enjoying them and I’d like to thank all of you who have left feedback…I really appreciate it

Here is the Portrait Gallery

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Fabulous work – love the ‘bleeding’ effect of the paints – the blur between dreams/reality – I think our ‘dreams/desires’ drive us – they can fulfill us. I see a longing in her gaze. :-)

  • That is exactly what I was going for Cathy…that feeling when you are partially awake and still dreaming, so that it seems real, only it isn’t, but you long for it to be real….yes they drive us…. they make us reach for what is outside our grasp….thank you so much for your lovely comment…

    oh! janis this is amazing and beautiful,haughnting and with eyes full of dreaming ! I llike this so much !LIZ

  • For me the eyes are it….I don’t really paint too many expression lines, I concentrate on the eyes telling the whole story…. eyes are extremely important….I started this painting with something else in mind, but when I started to add dyes it went a different way and I changed my plan….thanks so much Liz…glad you like it….
