Ornate Portrait: Watercolor and Ink
This is a collaborative project. Hand drawn in india ink over a warm up painting by NYC watercolor artist Amanda Smith, of SoCal design studio A. Smith and Co.
Amanda's watercolor warm ups are usually just too beautiful to waste. I routinely sneak them away from the trash pile and sketch over the top of them while watching tv or listening to some tunes. This painting was actually a profile of my oldest daughter, but after I added ornate flowers and a massive pile of hair, it's unrecognizable now. Amanda and I both love how beautifully this one came out, so we've added this ornate portrait to our shop. It's available as a print, tshirt, iPhone case and more. See the link below.
