Portrait #170

Portraits have now become my favourite subject for watercolour. Where possible I like to work from life but I have learnt much from wrestling with getting proportions right from photos.

At the end of my first year of one painting a day – on 29 January 2017 I decided to paint portraits. My first was a portrait of me in my hotel room in Gaborone.

Here is my practice from 21 November 2018.

Portrait # 170 Watercolour on 300gm Bockingford - 28x38 cm

This painting is now available for sale on my gallery site.
I have also made available a limited set (100) of high quality prints which I sign and number.
