Happy New Year



Now that it's 2010, I thought it was time to post some new artwork. Unfortunately, I can't share much of the work I've been doing lately due to contractual obligations so, with that in mind, here's a quick watercolour portrait of my wife, my baby girl and I, which I did over the holidays. I've never been very comfortable working in water-colour, so I prefer only using them to mess around with on quick sketches, and not on final work for clients.

Here's hoping that you all had a nice time during your holidays and are enjoying a wonderful start to 2010.

Michael Cho said...

Thanks, folks.

Mo: Yep, the little one is HUGE. I can't believe how fast she's grown in a year as well. And one of her favourite things to do is play with daddy's pencils and markers.

Thanks, everyone. Honestly, I know of a lot of great watercolour painters, and I doubt I'll be happy with my technique in it. I mean, I had to cheat here and add black line to places. But thanks for the comments, and I hope you're all enjoying 2010.

HRKim: Hey Karen! Nice to hear from you. I hope you're enjoying life back home.
