My lovely friend Angela agreed to let me draw her today, and I did some sketches from life, but we both had to finally admit that it's hard to sit still with a highly energetic ten month-old in your lap!  In the end, I took a few photo references as well, and then worked on this watercolor portrait at home.  As is evident, it's an (ahem) early attempt at watercolor portraiture, but there is a lot for me to learn, and it's exciting to be practicing!  I'm particularly fascinated with varying the different sorts of edges in the portrait.
