Three little lunch breaks.

I learn so much each time I do a watercolour. I learn, that I should not draw so many lines, that I should be patient, that I should simplify what I see, that I should be more subtle with my tones and finally, that I should be more confident with my brush strokes.

This is a portrait of Micke Nybrink, he is a Trotting media journalist here in Sweden. Last week I created a web site in which he featured and this is where the image of him inspired me to paint him. You can see the website and his photo here if you like. It took me three lunch breaks to complete the painting, almost two hours I would guess.

  1. Nice portrait,but I would like seeing more transparecy in the flowers of the head,as usual a good one.

  2. I'm having real hard time replying via my iPhone. I agree, my technique is weak but I am happy that I was able to capture his likeness.
