Last night's model was the lovely Marie-Camille who left our village to study theatre design in Paris. She was home for the Easter holidays.
Although I had stretched a large sheet of watercolour paper, I still ran out of room for her hands. Not sure whether to tape on another piece of paper on the bottom to complete the picture from the photograph or just leave it as is.
After working as a professional portraitst for many years, I am relishing the freedom of painting people without having to worry about client approval. I think it's resulting in much better work.
