“Malynda and Bri”

For the last two weeks, I have been honing, or at least, rehoning, my watercolor skills and applying them to portraiture. The first two I started at the hospital—I am a cancer patient and I sometimes paint while I’m in chemo. They were at best “practice” pieces, and I will redo them.

I drew out most of this one also while I was undergoing treatment. The last two days it got color, and I am now confident enough to start looking for commissions. Please feel free to email me if you are interested in a possible commission. artinsmallplaces@gmail.com

This photograph was taken with my phone. I need a fairly clear photo to work from.
