After almost 3 weeks of doing online work, am finally happy to be able to hold the brush and paint again.   I need more practise in doing children. I find children difficult to paint because they have less curves, corners and wrinkles - features that give people their own 'character'.    - http://ricaespiritu.com/watercolor-portrait-49-of-100-isla/ #AnArtworkADay, #Art, #PaintingChildren, #Watercolor, #WatercolorPortraits

All these years, I am fortunate to be able to do what I love and get paid for it. This is the first time however, that I'm finally tackling the bull by the horns - that is painting the traditional way. Something I could never do before because I couldn't afford to buy art materials. Now I can...  - http://ricaespiritu.com/watercolor-portrait-18-b-b/ #Watercolor, #WatercolorPortraits

I've been wanting to do this for quite some time. I wish he was still around to see this because I know he loved paintings. Yes Mr. V, I know you're still watching over your family and their friends.

When I was new at blogster back in 2009, I had no idea how to blog or how it was like to be in a blogging community. Sure I had a job to fulfill, one of them was learning how to blog. Charlie (Abifyt) happened to be one of the few who visited and commented on my blog (Anacoana, ceilede,...  - http://ricaespiritu.com/watercolor-portrait-22-charlie/ #Blogster, #Watercolor, #WatercolorPortraits

It feels like forever. I feel like I haven't painted for decades. Clients have been piling on the work [since it is Christmas season] and now that I have the time, first thing I did was sleep. After 12 hours of sleep I've started to sketch and paint again. Here's one.   - http://ricaespiritu.com/watercolor-portrait-46-of-100-a-friends-sister/ #WatercolorPortraits

I realized one thing – do you need to learn patience? Watercolor is the best teacher. You can’t just paint everything in one go. One waits. ...

Good old friends are like old shirts - you keep coming back because of the comfort they bring into your life. It doesn't matter how bad you look or how rotten you feel, old friends don't care. They've seen you through you worst. Alfred and I go waaaaaay back - like high school. He knew me when I...  - http://ricaespiritu.com/watercolor-portrait-58-of-100-good-ol-friends/ #WatercolorPortraits

It all started when my brother asked me to do a portrait of his friend. He didn't want a digital one. He wanted something tangible. A 'real' artwork.  That's what pushed me to pick up the brush and do watercolor portraits.    I can't get these thoughts out of my mind. It's like I'm gripped...  - http://ricaespiritu.com/daily-doodles-trying-my-hand-at-watercolor/ #PetPortraits, #Portraits, #Watercolor, #WatercolorPortraits

My mother is 1/4 Spanish. It shows. Although she didn't inherit the gray eyes and height, she got the wide hips, which she passed on to me. :) My mother's petite for her height and weight - she stands 4 ft 11 inches [although she will adamantly say that she's 5 feet and I'm 5'3"] and weighs...  - http://ricaespiritu.com/watercolor-portrait-37-of-100-my-mother/ #AnArtworkADay, #Art, #Watercolor, #WatercolorPortraits

It was my first pen-meet. That is a group of people meeting for one reason - fountain pens. It was held at my friend's place and Thom happened to be there.
