Ermelinda is a singer, she has a beautiful classical voice. We met earlier in the year at an art exhibition and I secretly tried to sketch her interesting face and long black hair. Fortunately after we got talking she agreed to pose for some reference photographs (sketching time ran out) for me to use at a later date.
It's taken me a while to get round to it and is a first attempt at a portrait in watercolour. I think I painted her a little too fierce and there are things I don't like but I didn't want to fiddle around with it too much so I left it as it is.
