"A Day Not Wasted". The photographer, Lee Brown graciously posts one of his photos each month as a challenge to artists. This young lady was posted way back in September. So you can see i am not ever going to be a "Daily Painter" let alone a monthly one. But i loved the expression on this young lady and wanted to try and capture it. She seemed to be daydreaming of far away lands not waiting on tables.
I got half way through and left her leaning against the gallery wall for a couple of months as i was not sure where to take her. But after a while realized she was almost done and needed only a few more little tweeks here and there. Would love to try this one again with different colors and a different mood. She is 15" X 30", all watercolor on Arches 300lb. CP paper.
