Attempts at Becca

I took the usual photos this past Xmas in Baton Rouge, the kind one takes just to remember the moment. There was one that I liked of my wonderful niece Becca who lives in Brooklyn. I had done a couple of stylized portraits recently (one in the previous post) and figured I'd give a try with Becca.

I'll start with a quick print of the photo from my old Epson that I played with some. Just the photo with some ink and oil pastels.

Here's the first real attempt. I did some this past week and set it aside but I started working on it again today. Oil pastels with some watercolor and pencil on watercolor paper. Quite unfinished....

Here's the next one and Karen seems to like this one. It's further along. I'll keep working on this one too. Oil pastels, watercolor and pencil on watercolor paper.
