Daljit is a scout leader, a compassionate wonderful person whom has spent decades volunteering in the UK and across the world helping others through scouting. He’s a friend whom I never fail to feel happy after talking too.
His portrait, conducted over the internet because of the pandemic from a photograph captures his sensitivity and thoughtfulness -although not perhaps his mischievous sense of humour. The multiple neckerchief add that send of how many roles and responsibilities Daljit takes on to support, educate and empower others in his volunteering.
The portrait is watercolour on locally made watercolour card, 30x40cm and was painted in my home studio this morning. A huge thank you to Daljit for allowing me to paint his portrait.
