The following color portraits of people were inspired by a new set of watercolors I purchased. I love color, and it had been years since I purchased a new set of watercolors. My old palette was muddy, missing blues, oranges, yellows, reds, and more! When the new colors started to flow, so did the portraits.

The 9″x12″ colorful portraits were drawn and painted with watercolors, pens, colored pencils, paint pens, markers, oil pastels, and acrylic paint.
