I visited China recently in the Sichuan area. This girl was trying to sell me some trinkets and I was drawn to her fine features and there was something about her that made me want to take a picture with her. She obliged and here is the photo of her (next to me).
I am going to attempt to paint a portrait of her from an enlarged photo. This will be the first time that I will be painting a portrait and just looking at the photo is enough to give me the motivation to challenge myself to paint a portrait of her. I shall start with making sketches and looks like this new project will take some time.
