Kristine's Dad

approx. 15" x 11", watercolour, 1996, private collection

At the time I was doing portraits of my crewmates at The Shopping Channel (click on the TSC tag below to see them), one of our camera operators, Kristine, asked if I could do a portrait based on an old photo of her dad (and, I think, his brother). So I did, and retained the monochromatic nature of the reference photo rather than colourizing it (I might have tried if she asked for that, but we both agreed subtle blue monochromatic tones would work best).
