This is rough sketch of another little cutie that I am working on for a Christmas commission gift. Again, this is the rough sketch on cartridge paper that I will then transfer to the watercolor paper and finesse a bit more before starting on the actual painting process.
This portrait, with the background, will be 18x24 so she will be surrounded by grass and a few little wildflowers here and there that I will draw and paint directly onto the watercolor paper. I am waiting to hear back from my client to see if the plaid is to be included so sketched it in for now just in case!
I will be working on two portraits at the same time to allow each portrait drying time as I do not like to speed up the process with a dryer as I worry about the colors staying crisp and clean. For this portrait, click on the label below, annette to see only this portraits updates.
