After many weeks of working on her she is now completed. I had some issues with the original digital scans and chose to scrap them and rescan her which took some time. She turned out pretty cute as she blows bubbles to water and grow her garden of pink flowers. Continue reading
Paper Size – 10×10 inches (25,5cm by 25,5cm)

Here we have a portrait that I was commissioned to do of my friend, Joshua Hamilton’s wife. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
The final size of the portrait is 10 by 10 inches and it was created with Winsor & Newton watercolour, Prismacolor coloured pencils, Pilot hi tec C pens and Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens on Arches watercolour paper.
Interested in a portrait, do get in touch.
