An exercise for some in the Thursday gang. A twenty minute watercolour portrait.

Not being a member of the Thursday gang I don’t know why the portrait needed to be completed in 20 minutes, but nonetheless this is an excellent insightful reflection of the little boy’s character and technically accomplished. Stephen Phillips

Thank you Stephen, my rush here is due to the mix in the class. The demo was for the newcomers to the class so to avoid neglecting the rest I had to curb time spent. It does focus the mind, though!
Update on portraits: Jamie and Callum are finished and just a smidgen from finishing Helen. I am planning to frame Jamie and Helen at same time (Callum is framed already) so as to give all three at once. If Helen’s trails on a bit, I’ll have Callum and Jamie framed and ready during second week in December
