No.40 A while back I pinned (on Pinterest) a gorgeous picture of a girl by illustrator Peggy Wolf. I take inspiration from this for this series of portraits. The shading on the face, the beaded feather headband. Mostly in watercolour & black pen but the orange is a florescent acrylic paint which I got very excited about
No.39 I'm really happy with this drawing. The pose is lovely, the lips are great. The hair, the jumper - it all works. One way that proves to myself to be one of my best is that I like to keep looking at it. The one criticism is maybe the eyes are a little too big!
No.36 this piece of artwork (now hanging in our bathroom) was a work in progress. Originally found by Quincy in a skip in London. The board had been used for a preliminary sketch. It had a young boy & girl on it in a faint blue wash. There wasn't much detail & I attempted to 'bring out' their features - failed. So, I left it for a while. Then I painted on some blocks of colour & gradually started building it up. I'm happy with it.
