Little Miss Innocent

Pure Watercolour
Arches 140lb
Approx
20x 14in

I loved this photo I took of my little granddaughter Zahrah. She has a permanent look of “Butter wouldn’t melt” on her face, but like so many at her age, she is an absolute little darling, with a little devilish spirit. She usually checks to see if you are watching her before attempting to touch something she shouldn’t, which was when I captured her with my camera. Such a sweet innocence.

I have really fallen in love with painting portraits, but find I now feel that need to express more in my work, something I believe all artists go through and something I don’t believe can be taught, although can be inspired. I believe as artists we have to find our own way there through painting and experimenting. I wanted to play with colour, the colour I see in subjects that isn’t always evident in that first glance, or is it perhaps just a case not being brave enough to place those colours, as we all err on the side of caution when we first start out.

I find that as i’m progressing, i’m instinctively picking up the colours and placing them fairly quickly, and could almost say without too much thought, or perhaps again it’s just that I have more experience now. For me this way usually ends up with a more satisfying painting.
