Daisy

daisy big head

Today’s face: Daisy. This is a portrait of my daughter Daisy and is part of this week’s homework for the Sketchbook Skool Urban Sketching kourse. This week’s klass is taught by the illustrator Lapin and the homework is to draw a “big head” portrait (where the head is the largest part of the portrait and the body can be drawn smaller to fit in the page) of a live subject and paint it with watercolour, mixing all our colours from just 3 watercolours, blue, red and yellow. Lapin also includes a speech bubble in his portraits to record something of the conversation he has with his subject while drawing and he asks his subject to sign their portrait so I followed his protocol with my portrait. Drawn in a Hannehmühle Nostalgie sketchbook with a Unipin 03 pen, Jane Davenport watercolours and Prismacolor coloured pencils.
