Client: Henry Holt
Watercolor on paper
Martha Rago is really great about that. Even though the jobs aren't as lucrative, with Martha I almost always end up with a portfolio piece. She isn't afraid to choose a sketch that is different from what she expected to see.
This is a portrait of one of my SJSU students. I prefer to work with models I know, their personality seems to end up in the painting, making it better.
