watercolour sketch – Deidre (ma)

Friday’s sketch, my mother. She started to look very witchy, but i managed to resolve that and when i told her she exclaimed “But I do look like a witch”! Had problems with squashing the features too much to begin with, which has been a bit of a theme with these portraits so i must watch that in the future and try to elongate them from the start.  This one turned out quite illustrative, which is fine, but i feel myself returning to old habits of relying on line instead of light, shadow and colour.
