I have only tried this once, but I find it is an interesting way to draw and paint. I first saw this done when my daughter was in art achool and brought home a simular painting. However, I must confess, I thought hers was elegant and much better than this one I did. I thought I would give it a try. This was done from a photograph of my granddaughter. I first did the drawing with black india ink and then I put a wash of burnt Sienna over it. You might want to give it a go--and hope it is better than this one. I am not one that likes to do people and so I guess that is why I don't do many portraits. I really love landscapes and flowers. But I am willing to try anything that is different. My granddaughter is much prettier than this painting.
