Artist's Description

Those who know our family will recognize (I hope!), Helene, my mother in law in this portrait. I used watercolors and a little bit of gouache in the background.

The challenge in this portrait was the picture I was working from, I liked very much the picture but it had a very bad resolution. I tried to use this drawback as an opportunity to loosen up my style a little bit. I had no real definition of the eyes for example, so they are more a suggestion than a really define area, which is nice .
