Portraiture Job

So I did Portraiture at Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan Town on April 17th and 18th and "WIND" reception at Space Gallery on May 1st as an SIR's promotion. It was really fun and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that job! 15 min portrait ( if it's couple, it'll take longer) with watercolor, color pencil and marker. Since making painting digital and sending it in digital is very popular in these days, this portraiture job was different. Painting traditionally in front of the customer and hand it to them. So I can actually see the reaction of the people and feel their emotion. I love seeing happy face! It is wonderful to make people happy with my painting.
