Portraits

A few weekends ago I attended a portrait workshop at Barnet Guild of Artists’ studio.

In the morning I did a study of the model in pastel and charcoal.

In the afternoon I painted another model in watercolour.

First I did the underdrawing in pencil:

Then I started painting using watercolour:

I was at the studio from 10 am to 3:30pm. It was a very productive and enjoyable day !

Hello!

I have been painting portraits in pastels recently.

This is a portrait of my partner who is sketching me. He is also an artist so we sometimes draw each other.
