watercolour sketch – JB (dad)

Friday’s watercolour…I’m happy with the skin colour and beard in this one, but struggled with the right eye (which still isn’t right, but good enough). At one point I moved the mouth down and it’s amazing how that corrected the whole portrait. When stuck i turn the picture upside down to see only shapes and proportions instead of ‘mouth’, ‘eye’ etc and this has proved invaluable in ‘getting it right’. I can really feel that this practice has improved my skills and the progression can clearly be seen when you look at the portraits in the order they were done.
