Portrait of Paul Watercolor Painting


This is a portrait I did for the Wet Canvas weekend drawing event. It's a 7 X 10" in watercolor. There are at least six different colors used in the skin tones of his face.

"We often think that when we have completed our study on one, we know all about two, because "two is one and one." We forget that we have still to make a study of 'and'."
--Sir Arthur Eddington

In Dr. Paul Brand and Philip Yancey's book "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made" the human body is compared to the church body. He talks about the importance of diversity of individuals within God's body... and the "motley crew" that God picked throughout the Bible to accomplish what he wanted, with many examples and this.... "A color on a canvas can be beautiful in itself. However, the artist excels, not by slathering one color across the canvas, but by positioning it between contrasting or complementing hues. The original color then derives richness and depth from its milieu of unlike colors."
