this is a bit of a dorian grey, as olly looks remarkably youthful in this portrait. but i had to be quick as he got bored easily and wanted to have a cigarette.

watercolour, pencil and gouache on paper

i’m working on a new technique  using watercolours.  trying out new things, that’s really the point of this blog, forcing myself to experiment and hopefully develop.  even if it doesn’t really work!  anyway i’ve been looking at lucy jones‘ watercolour portraits which are beautiful and inspired me to try and work into some of my line drawings. i discovered her work by chance, whilst  visiting a friends exhibition at flowers gallery [kate knight “artist for a day“] this week, i checked the gallery website and stumbled into her work.
