Rosemary works at Umfolozi Big 5, a private game reserve in South Africa. I took the photo last year during a painting holiday when we spent 3 days at one of the lodges.
Painting portraits. Part of my lock down project to myself is painting portraits. I was not happy with what was happening on the paper. Then, last night I had a light bulb moment. I wasn’t being wet enough. I am always telling everyone to use water. Wet wet and more wet. It’s only water don’t be afraid of it. Allow it to carry the paint. If you put too much on, you can take it off or wait for it to sink into the paper, if you do not put enough water on, the paint will not be able to play.
