As a mum first and an artist second it’s a rare treat for me to have 4 hours painting time in one go. I must admit it’s been quite an enjoyable subject to paint, more enjoyable than studying a banana in a bowl of fruit. This was my second ever realistic watercolour portrait as I’ve always avoided painting in such detail until I discovered the grid method. Still lots to learn. My friend James Pauburgh was a bodyguard for this guy a few years ago, lucky man! The first picky is 4 hours of painting, second picky is after 6 hours painting time and in total it took 10 hours. This ones not for sale as it’s on the wall at Vision House, Leicestershire.
