I'm saying this up front - I am not a tobacco smoker, but I'm not judging anyone that is. Now, I'm not exactly sure why I painted my subject smoking except that I had already put the wine glass on the table and then I thought she needed to be doing SOMETHING - so I just stuck the smoke in her hand. (people have asked me about this)
Plus, I like to think that maybe she's not smoking tobacco, but maybe something a little more medicinal, Haha!
I do these quick little ink and watercolors while I sit out back in the garden waiting for the birds or butterflies to come around so I can get a shot of them with my camera.
I've included the smaller Bird-of-Paradise, Heliconia and the Passionflower vine in this painting. Oh, and some palm fronds.
This is a small postcard size painting on heavy watercolor paper.
