Old Fashioned Portrait...

It's been awhile since I did a portrait. I love working in Black and White. This is just a simple attempt of an Old style Black and White Portrait with only black watercolor paint on a paper which is not even good for a  watercolor painting.


Surface: Strathmore Smooth Bristol Paper 
Paints: Grumbacher - Academy Ivory black
Brushes: 10 round sable, 00 synthetic Winsor & Newton, and 000 Sable synthetic blend
Mediums: Water
Size: 11" x 14" (27.9 cm x 35.6 cm)


  1. Giri, you are an expert in painting/sketching hair, I love that in each of your work.

    1. Thanks Vasu. That reminds me, the Artist who used to sell greeting cards of his beautiful paintings in our hostel around New Year, who made the same comment when he saw my Paintings.
      I always feel that I am good at it and really enjoy doing hair in detailed way.
