When you live in Berlin, lots of people visit.
My Never-Muse comes to Berlin all the time. I had been planning watercolors of her since she went pastelgoth last year. I hadn’t painted a watercolor portrait in a very, very long time- 25 years. I did do a little watercolor experimentation to warm up earlier this summer.
I started the painting above, then set it aside to dry for a while and did this other one. When I came back to the first painting, we were talking about some very heavy things, and that’s why she looks so sad.
I feel like sadness is a part of life and sharing it with friends is a way to make peace with it, so I don’t mind that she looks sad.
I’m glad we did two though.
I was so happy to spend a day making art with my Never-Muse again.
