“A Bit of Lippy” is one of a group of water colour paintings Renée painted, around the late 1950s. Very vintage! Renée was inspired by many different portrait subjects. Renée was absolutely amazing at giving the likeness when painting a portrait. What was also awesome, was that no person every sat live for her. She painted all her portraits from photos. She almost always painted portraits in oils. Oils was her preferred medium. As is mine! Go Mama!
