    Well, it was Malcolm I thought of instantly when I saw this, before even reading your words.
    I think you did a wonderful job Wen, your colours are bright and vibrant, not muddied at all and the detail in this is just superb. If this is your first attempt, I can’t wait to see what you come up with with your next portrait!!

  • Really?! Awwww..thank you so much Marion! : ) I’m so happy that you thought of Malcolm first. l will be challenging myself again in the near furture because I’ll be putting some work into the local Zonta exhibition again this Australia Day. Perhaps I’ll include some watercolours in it this year : ). thanks again.. Wen xox
