Penny

The brief at the WA was to paint a clock, paying particular attention to depicting the space between glass and dial. Good subject for watercolour and ink, which is what I took. Penny, however, asked me to take on another commission and presented me with a photo of her glamorous self. Brilliant....I get out of the clock thing by doing a preliminary sketch of Penny. All well and good.....but....watercolour! Bear in mind I have not touched watercolours for YEARS! But I had a go, actually inspired by Sadami, who is the reason I had dug them out of a box in the shed. Check her out, she is cool.

Very nice, Sharon. I love Sadami's work, too. Sounds like you had a great time.

Can't think of anything I would hate to draw more than a clock, Ugh.. Penny is much more interesting to draw and watercolours! I have always wanted to try but never seriously. I will check your link out. Smiling portrait must be very difficult but you have nailed it again.

I fear watercolors but yours has a spark to it.

Your colours are clean and fresh and what a beautiful expression on Penny's face. When it comes to portraits, I don't think you should fear any medium Sharon!

Dear Sharon,
Lovely and amazing work! Thank you for the kind comment on me. I'd like to learn oil from you.
Kind regards, Sadami

No the easiest of tasks, a portrait in watercolours, especially if you have not touched them in ages, but I see why you might have preferred it to the clock!

Whether it is a good likeness, I can't be knowing, but it feels as though it is. It has everything else you might reasonably require of a portrait. Excellent.
