Yesterday’s face: Mila, inspired by Sktchy. My husband is in hospital at the moment so, although I made this portrait yesterday , I haven’t found time to upload it until now! Its also not my best work, but making it early yesterday morning was a really important exercise in art therapy for me. I’d had a very stressful evening on Wednesday, hadn’t slept much, and knew I had a really difficult work afternoon ahead, combined with a long drive plus another evening at the hospital and no time to eat. Focusing on painting Mila’s face was so helpful in giving me time to be calm and relaxed ahead of that afternoon and evening. I’m so grateful that I can do this. BTW my husband’s going to be fine, he just needs a few days of hospital care.

Drawn in a Moleskine watercolour sketchbook with Micron 005 and 01pens and painted with Zecchi Toscana watercolours.
