"Brothers" 9x12 watercolor on Arches rough
Here is a painting I did for my oldest son's birthday, he is the one on the left. The reference I used is a snapshot I took as my first and third sons were walking away from me in a crowed parking lot. I isolated the figures quite intentionally and placed therm in a very ambiguous environment. I added a long shadow to help the composition with an uncertain sky the only real background. I used a very limited palette of Ultramarine, Cad. Red and Raw Umber.
