Blue is my favourite colour. I find it soothing, cooling, calming. I also have a long history of severe depression and blue is, of course, the colour associated with sadness. Today I am feeling blue (post-election blues after yesterday’s UK election) and it felt right to draw a blue portrait. It so happens that Sktchy is having a Blue Portrait Party this week, which gave me even more of a reason to draw a blue portrait. So here is Adah looking much paler and bluer than she does in the inspiration photo!
I drew Adah on my iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil using the Procreate app.
