Portrait of Vivienne

Another portrait done from reference at Sktchy. I’m a little conflicted by this one – I really like the painting, but I also know that the likeness is off. That’s precisely why I’m setting out to paint a lot more, of course – I need the practice!

I’m finding the watercolour paintings difficult to get an accurate picture of. I’ve tried both my scanners but can never quite seem to adjust the results to look like the original painting. I might try photographing the next one to see if it helps. If you’ve got experience scanning or photographing watercolour paintings and have any advice, I’m all ears – please let me know in the comments.
