My hands have been itching to do a portrait for a while now. Since I 've just started in water color I wasn't sure if I should even attempt it. While I was checking out the pics of one of my contacts on flickr, I found my inspiration. You can check his work out on http://hellosapa.com/ I realize portraits is what I really love painting and would love to paint this again in oil.
PS: Looking at the post I realize the yellow on the rooster is a tad dark! Need to lighten it.

I didn't track the time taken to paint it but I must have taken the longest in drawing the goblet. I had a hard time getting the shape right! The other challenge was saving the whites. I don't have a white pen so couldn't reinstate the highlights.

Woops! Forgot the edit part! The water fall is just so cluttered. Couldn't get the water right either. I wish I had selected the Fuchsia bushes for the second painting (in center) instead. At least the page would have looked better. Landscape has never been my forte on top of that it was a timed assignment of 20 min. Couldn't finish it in time though. Had to improvise later.
