Just finished Justice - a Colonial Williamsburg Interpreter

8 x 8
Medium - Gouache & watercolor on Canson watercolor paper

A beautiful lady with a beautiful smile. I wanted to capture the smile. 

If you go to Williamsburg to the Great Hopes Plantation you are sure to see her.
Here's the photo I took this summer to use as reference
This is a pic of her Mom holding the print I sent to her.

On my easel 10-21-15 "Justice"

Update  10-23-2015
Pass #2 - adding in detail and adding a little punch to the color


This is my latest painting I'm working on.
I'm in the early stages, just blocked in color and just starting to work on detail
She is an interpreter from Colonial Williamsburg, working mostly at the Great Hopes Plantation. I'm working from  a reference photo from the last time I was at Colonial Williamsburg. She just has a wonderful personality that I am trying to capture. Let's hope I don't lose that wonderful feeling by over-working it.

8 x 8 - using gouache and
watercolor on watercolor paper.

On my easel - Springhouse on the Ashbridge Property in Downingtown.

This is a Springhouse next to the Sharpless/Ashbridge House in Downingtown, PA

The Ashbridge House is used for the Historical society and is being restored.
