"Portofino"


Portofino is finally  complete. This was a commission for a lady who saw another one similar to it and asked me to do one for her.  It took me over 18 months to get it done because i kept getting sidetracked doing other things. She was so very patient and gracious. I would have fired myself a long time ago.
But glad she waited as i am most pleased with the outcome and cannot wait to show it to her. This is watercolor on Arches 300 lb. CP paper. 17" X 44".

  7. Thanks Gena. They sort of evolve in the drawing process and take on a life of their own. Now, if only i would draw more. So glad to have you drop by.
