watercolor by Jane McElvany Coonce
I'm going to do a series of watercolor portraits of woman (and possibly men) in hats. This is the first one in the series. I love Aunt Mildred's hat and how dressed up she was for this photograph. I knew it would be a great painting if I could pull it off. I've been wanting to do this portrait for over a year, and I finally got enough guts to start. It was so much fun. I finished it yesterday during the snow storm. See, snow is good for some things!
Now I'm ready to start my next "woman in a hat" painting. But after that, I don't have any more ideas. So if you've got a great hat, I'd love to come and photograph you in it. You can be my next Guinea pig.
