Portrait of Zoe

I’ll admit, I struggled for the likeness on this one, but I really wanted the chance to paint that red hair! It turned out to be a tremendously difficult colour to get right, ending up as a combination of several red and red earth colours, but in the end I was satisfied with it. I added the green background, not present in the reference, to really get that complementary colour “pop” effect.

Pen and watercolour on paper, 4×6″.
