the art of practice

My new make work project this week has been practicing my portraiture in watercolour and adding other media such as soft pencil crayons and paint marker. It's gotten very silly very quickly. I didn't see the point in painting serious portraits, so I worked from goofy photos instead, and the results have been quite amusing.
