Garden Path for Ouma, 42x30cm, Watercolor on Mounted Paper

Jan 23, 2017 @ 06:00

This is a painting I am working on for my paternal grandmother. Being on the Afrikaans side of my family I grew up calling her Ouma, and my other (Scottish) grandmother Granny.

Initials, I considered it finished at this point, but, typical family member, she didn’t like it with “all that blank paper”. It wasn’t worth arguing about composition and balance, so I agreed to take it back and add a path up the left side (sigh).
