FACE OF A SAINT IX / Daily Painting #1421

Face of a Saint IX / Ink and Watercolor / 7 x 10 Inches / Daily Painting #1421

OK, I think we can now officially call this a series. The more of them I do, the more ideas I have.

My friend Troy Brown wants me to continue, but stick with watercolor. We'll see. Maybe both, oils and watercolors. Also, I may very well do some larger pieces as time allows.

My friend and fellow blogger Gena LaCoste, up in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, says a show may be in order. Who knows? It would be fun to see a large group of them all together. But where? Any ideas, anyone?

  1. This is extremely well-done, John. The thing that amazes me is how you are able to suggest the surface material, which we know these santos are made of: painted plaster over wood. The carved wood feel is there and also especially on the neck here the idea of a coating of plaster with paint. Well done and vibrant!

  2. The more I see the more I like. The robes colors are expressing their own stories. Finding the history of these would make a wonderful show.
