New portrait paintings

These are a few more recent portrait paintings.  While the top three were done in the studio, the portrait of Kirsty was done at a life drawing session using a $4 paintbox from Woolworths.  The cheap paints are somewhere between watercolour and gouache, and have a pearly texture.  The colours are quite lovely. I suppose they will fade, but I like the effect and this paintbox is great for travel.
