There are times when I paint for the sake of painting. I made this group portrait painting on one of those days. I grabbed a reference image, my brushes, my paints, a piece of vintage accounting ledger exercises paper and I started to work. 

The image is inspired by family photos I found on my collection. I took one out and I started to paint, but this time I focused not on copying the faces and expressions of each person, I let watercolor dictate what it wanted to do with each.

The ending result is a beautiful image where shapes and a limited color palette blend to create an image with a feeling of old time, a little eerie since they are long gone today, I wanted to show you a window to a past time we can barely understand, one that we now know only from the fragments of life records left behind by the ones now long gone.
