change of media

this was a portrait by request... from a photo... a task that scares me and i seldom do... it was a nice image and a nice friendly request so I decided I should attempt it... doing what I do from the web cams... which is looking for the essence not copying the detail... i've also trying out heavier grade watercolour paper and so i decided to also try out gauche to get a more relaxed result.. since i'm looking for ways to speed up the painting time required

i'm happy with the result... but i think conventional watercolour washes might still be the better medium for me.
