I've been reading Oliver Twist lately, and Dickens really gives the reader a great description of the characters he writes about. I wanted to post this before I ruin it attempting to paint it with watercolor.
I went to visit my high school yesterday for the first time since I graduated eight years ago. My senior year I painted Sargent's "Lady With A Rose" on the wall of one of the hallways. Unfortunately, some renovations were done and the thing was painted over at some point. As a bit of nostalgia I did this study.
