Today watercolor painting is the portrait of “Blue” a lovely and delicate creature, she has beautiful and intense big blue eyes. When I painted Blue I was inspired by the unique and beautiful  “Art Dolls” custom-made for collectors. Better known as “Blythe Dolls” they are really pretty and one of the characteristics is that they have an over sized head and large eyes over a smaller body, they are really cute. Blythe dolls acquired a cult following of collectors and eventually, photographers and artists around the world, you can read more about them here on Wikipedia.

My painting is another limited palette, only three colors Blue Ultramarine, Grey Payne and Vermilion Red.
