Today’s face: Kristine, inspired by Sktchy. Kristine’s inspiration photo for this portrait is also today’s inspiration photo for Sktchy’s Mindful March lesson, which focuses on the concept of Maitri, which is about being kind, to others but also to ourselves. We were asked to take note of something we like in our portraits and share it. I don’t often include backgrounds in my portraits but I liked a quilt in the inspiration photo so much that it prompted me to create a background that I really love. And I’ve used that blue in various ways throughout the portrait and it brings the whole piece together – so these are the things that I especially like about this portrait.

Drawn in a Fabriano watercolour sketchbook with a Copic multiliner, painted with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished with Prismacolor coloured pencils.
