I didn’t start out drawing portraits with the intention of ever selling my portraits. I never really imagined I’d be good enough. But over the past year I’ve started to get asked to take commissions and now I have a steady stream of them coming in. At the moment I’m working on a few that need to completed fairly soon and I’m also going to be exhibiting in an Artists Open House in the Brighton Fringe Festival in May, so I’m not going to have as much time for my daily faces. But today it’s been lovely to just play around in my sketchbook and paint Jagonte, without any pressure!
I drew Jagonte with a Micron fineliner, painted the portrait with Zecchi Toscana watercolours and finished it with Prismacolor coloured pencils.
