A feedback that I got lately from many of my friends and viewers was- "You will have try bigger paintings". I attempted a portrait on a bigger paper 16" x 20". This is probably the biggest portrait and watercolor painting I have ever tried so far.
This is based on Telugu playback Singer and multi-talented artist Sunitha's portrait posted on her Facebook page. Though I lost her exact facial features along the way, I enjoyed doing a portrait of this big in size. It is easier to flow and blend colors.
