Today’s face: Hannah, inspired by Sktchy.

This portrait is for Day 3 of Sktchy’s 30 Faces 30 Days challenge. I realised as I posted it that I have the angle of the head completely wrong but never mind. I’m relatively new to watercolour – I’m working in the smallest size of the Fabriano Venezia sketchbook and have almost finished it. I did my first watercolour portrait in it on 26 June (I do 2 or 3 watercolour portraits a week) and if I compare this to that first one and just flick through it I can see the improvement page by page and I’m also aware of it as I paint. I just understand how the paints work so much more and I feel so much more confident of what I can do with the paint as I work. I don’t regard myself as a watercolourist yet, but maybe one day!

Drawn in a Fabriano Venezia sketchbook with a Micron 005 pen and painted with Zecchi Toscana and Greenleaf and Blueberry watercolours.
