Quick Portrait

Portraiture is a subject I love, but in order to feel confident in it, more frequent practice is needed. To make my 20 minute timeframe I omitted sketching in pencil - and having the freedom to erase lines - and went right in with the paint. I ended up with a nice softly rendered portrait, where the head is a slight bit too big for the body. (Though it was a child model, and children do have different proportions than adults). Watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8".
