I'm excited to share some progress photos of my most recent commission! This was a big accomplishment for me because it's the largest watercolor painting that I've ever done! (24" X 18") I love painting large works and I had a great time painting this! I'm so excited to send it to my patrons!

I just finished a large watercolor flower painting commission! It's 18" X 20" which is fairly large for a watercolor. I really enjoy painting large works and I think this is one of my nicest watercolors. I'm going to flatten the paper tomorrow and take some nice photos for my website. I still have to varnish some oil paintings and photograph those also..
I had a great weekend with my girlfriend at her college and did some portrait sketches of her while I was there. I also went to the MET with my brother and his girlfriend. The first two photos below are my own sketches and down further are the masterpieces at the MET. Most of the images are from the work of John Singer Sargent and Bouguereau (my two favorites). The rest of the images are a collection of other works that I liked, some of which I didn't record the artists name.
