Charlotte~ A watercolor profile portrait.
Also viewed on "Profile Portraits" on my website:

Profile portraits (as well as silhouettes) were painted by itinerant artist to quickly and affordably capture a person’s resemblance. This original watercolor portrait is of Charlotte when she was nineteen, the year before her marriage. As a young girl, after her studies were complete, Charlotte would spend her afternoons wandering the family’s substantial gardens and estate. She drew and painted her findings. Charlotte measures 6 ½ by 7 ½ framed.

Charlotte’s Journal~ A watercolor nature journal.
Also viewed on "Early Wares" on my website.

Charlotte enjoyed studying the flora and fauna of her family’s estate. She found it helpful to make her own journals, ones that were small enough to slip in her pocket as she walked the estate. This pocket sized journal is painted on “aged” watercolor paper, and measures 4 ¾ by 4 ¾.

Thanks for peeking!


The excitement around here is the sprinkler system that is being installed this week in our yard. My boys were so interested in the big trencher that came to pull the hose underground...I'll share some pics friday.

I love the journal pages! I really appreciate your painting of Charlotte, and all of your portraits- I have never gotten the hang of painting people. Maybe someday...
