Paint Party Friday - The Watcher



Despite having another busy few days, I did manage to get my paints out. I’ve decided to call this week’s effort The Watcher. It’s based on a drawing I did in my sketchbook about a year ago. It’s not the kind of thing I normally do, but I thought ‘what the hell, I’ll give it a try and see what happens.’

    1. Thank you for your comment, Neesie. I think it's important to step out of the comfort zone once in a while. If we don't we can stagnate.

    1. Hi, Laila. Thank you for your kind comment. This is the first time I've painted any kind of portrait. I usually stick to landscape inspired artwork, hence the surroundings, but I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and I may attempt something similar in the future.

  15. Hi, Dea. Thank you for visiting and for your comment. I tend to find trees difficult too, but I have found if you let the brush do the work it makes it much easier.
