I decided to paint my mate Sana seeing as she was the person that was online at the time when I was wanting to paint! And chose one of Nuno's photos of her that he took for his catwalk project. (Click their names to go to their blogs).
-Ok.. photo isn't good quality and blogger has made it small .. just take my word that its way better in person -
This has to be one of the best portraits I've ever done. I spent about 2-3 weeks on it, painting in small amounts.
Time and patience is key.
I've improved my painting skills and have brought my old friend - watercolours - back into my life! I used to use them a lot in highschool and then ditched them for acrylics and inks when I was making up my portfolio. My love for watercolours has come back! :)
