Dream, April 24, 2012 life study


Dream, home, 4:14 am

A watercolor portrait of a round-headed man. Almost no neck holds the head above the shoulders of a brown WWII army officer’s uniform. The colors used are pale and the lines thin. The portrait’s eyes shift worriedly at the approach of the wet brush tip. He shifts and tries to turn as the painter adds more definition to the portrait’s pink cheeks. The portrait squirms as his details are filled in. He moves but he cannot part his lips to speak objections as the steady brush of the patient painter brings him to life on the textured paper.
