Pleasant pheasants and some royalty

Portraits 23 & 24 were supposed to be Prince Harry and his bride to be (later today) Meghan Markle.
There is a likeness but it proved tricky to do a good job with the ink brush which takes a VERY fine touch to do thin lines and of course entirely impossible to do shading – Harry’s very light beard in particular turned out far darker and denser than ideal.

These pheasants make up numbers 25 and 26. Whilst they weren’t hanging around for me to paint them they were squawking in the field out the back.

    1. Really? 😮
      I’ll be doing another one, but spending more time and care – and something I can do a graduated tone with rather than the ink brush which is more suited to cartoon work.
