Today I decided to try and paint my eldest daughter, Alex.
A few years ago I discovered acrylic paints - oh so much easier than watercolours
They do dry quickly, so I soak kitchen towel in water, put greaseproof
paper on top and put the blobs of paints on to that.
I use a plate for mixing and gradually build up layers and textures.
I don't try and match the colours of her face and hair, but
choose a palette of colours I like.
In this case, mustards, browns with purples and greens.
I leave the most difficult parts to last - Alex's eyes and lips.
I am not sure I have got is perfectly right - but I can see her in there somewhere!
