My trips to Seattle generally result in at least one attempt at a portrait of grandson Wilson. Unlike his twin Cole, he is more amenable to posing. However, like any normal 8 year old, posing doesn't last very long (which I can blame for the my inability to capture his likeness). The result this time is "Wilson and his Toys," a 10 x 14 pen and ink and watercolor painting. To try to improve on the original, I tweaked the resulting watercolor by doing a bit of over painting in Photoshop, then added a background that was a blurred version of a Home Depot product shot. All of the elements are shown above, including a refreshingly more appealing photo of Wilson, walking the dog Riley, while wearing a T shirt in 30+ degree weather.
