Gouache portrait #3

It’s all about me today.

Confucious said, “By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

I think i did all 3 today 🙏

I can’t believe it’s almost the weekend already. Time is flying by so quickly. I’ve also completed quite a few portraits in the last few months. It has opened my eyes to different ways artists capture their subjects in portraits.
