I decided to join in the wonderful initiative by Sky Arts and their Artist of the Year programmes with their covid-lockdown specials with guest sitters for their arts series. I wish I had done it sooner! What a wonderful idea.
Here sitter, Oti Mabuse joined thousands of artists across the country to pose as a subject for portrait. It's been great discussing with fellow artists online via instagram what papers, techniques and 'how to see'. Thank you Sky Arts & Team for the wonderful idea!
Here is my own watercolour portrait of Oti Mabuse where I have tried to capture her style and energy through joy.
