BOOK LADY – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I was asked to paint the portrait of a lady, who loves reading, as a birthday present. As she is someone I`ve never met good photos are very important. Fortunately one image had some decent lighting on it. The other was flat and featureless. One issue is that the lady had changed hair styles between photos and I subsequently found out she had lost some weight. All making life interesting.

We are getting there, but slowly, as other members of the family are viewing the image and adding their imput.

Other life drawing and painting are available on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. Thanks Warren. They were a bit of a pain. I drew out the shelving then outlined a few books and painted them in as I was doing the portrait and other surrounds, one or two at a time with the colour to hand. That way I got a bit of variation.
