Sept 16, 2018 Back from vacation. 10 days without drawing, and I feel rusty already. Here is a rose that was still blooming at the very end of the season. There was snow at slightly higher elevations. DSC_6972
Watercolor portrait study – painting again my lovely friend but didn’t do her justice! I wasn’t able to achieve the smooth look I was after.

Done in Pentalic sketchbook, from my own photo Gabi-portrait
