Thanks for the wonderful images Kay. I started out thinking this was just going to be a sketch so I did it on non-paintable sketch paper. Then I decided to paint her. Big mistake. However... painted her with W&N watercolor paints and used a roller pen. It took about an hour and she's about 9"x7". :D

Beautiful work! I got a question: by "non-paintable" do you mean thin paper?

Yes -- thin paper out of a kid's school sketchbook.

You captured her really well...like your clean lines, form and features; Background also works well.

Well, ignore what is non-paintable and do it anyway is my motto. You jumped into the process with great gusto and had super nice results, Kate!

I agree with Kay. I paint watercolors on all kinds of paper. I love this bust. She looks very Victorian and proper!

The lady is imposing and effective, and your street scene is charming.
