Portrait Study in watercolor

Page from my sketchbook 10"x 8"
I am thinking about converting this into a bigger painting.. maybe with some dramatic background.
This little sketch was based on a photo that I took on one of my trips to countryside in Hampshire.This elderly gentleman was admiring the garden while I admired his white hat and large sunglasses.The sunlight bouncing off his face makes him a good subject. It has been a long time since I have done a proper portrait and it kind of feels scary!

  1. An amazing portrait Arti. I can't imagine painting a portrait with watercolors.. that is talent! I love the sunlight hitting his face and his glasses are besutifully painted. Nice work!

    1. May be ,I should have used warmer colors.But he looks wonderful with those crisp shadows, doesn't he.I do hope that the larger portrait is better.
