Tiny Painting – Callista

March 12, 2017 / by grimwain

My latest fix has been painting portraits of beautiful girls.

Some are friends. Others…well…

I enjoy the challenge of capturing certain expressions, especially the look in a serious woman’s eyes.


Recently I sketched, inked, and watercolored a girl appearing in my latest novel Darkness Between the Stars (and its upcoming sequel Shadow of Forever.)

Here’s the sketch:

Callista Pencil

She’s tiny, only 6″ x 8″.  Even so, I toiled for hours getting the cold light in her eyes right.

And here’s the final version, with a few inks and watercolors added:
