The Old Man

I created this painting as the lesson for my next intermediate watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.  This is done mostly from my mind, and I used a limited palette of Dragon's Blood, Payne's Grey and green.  The detailing was done by dipping the end of a kabob holder in the payne's grey into wet paint. The colors were added first wet-in-wet forming the face and then the detailing.
