This is a portrait of my friend Vanessa from Nessbow. Check out her channel below, she’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met! Thanks for letting me paint you Vanessa!

Check out Nessbow’s sites here:

This is a new kind of video I’m trying out: art! Over the holidays I got back into watercolours after several years or not painting at all. I am definitely very out of practice with my painting but I would love to continue this series so I can improve more.

Speed painting… Nessbow!
Today I’m painting Nessbow!
Another in my blogger speed painting series.
I started by machine a basic outline in sepia.
Ness writes about fashion and beauty.
Then I did a basic wash of the skin.
And a blue wash on the dress.
I filled in the other basic colours on the hair and flowers.
She also writes about self esteem and being yourself.
I find her to be a really inspiring person both in fashion sense and her outlook on life.
She’s always so positive and full fo great ideas.
More hair details.
Ness has written ebooks and podcasts about developing personal style.
A patchy light purple background.
Her outfit posts are a source of awesome creativity too.
Shadows on the skin and some more definition.
Ness and her partner Ross love comics so I wanted to catch that style!
The comic style of drawing is actually one of my favorites.
And this is one of the first times I’ve translated it into a full painting.
Now adding some detail to the body shot.
She also has an etsy store where she sells her super cute fashion.
This look is quite cartoonish so I outlined everything in thick black,
Oh and her Youtube channel has vlogs and tutorials too!
Clearly she’s a very busy girl.
I have a unique insight because she has been one of my window shopping buddies since moving here!
She just moved away though so I don’t think we’ll be able to window shop for a while.
Hopefully she can come visit again soon!
Thick purple stripes for the background and it’s almost done!
Lastly I touched up a few areas with a pen.
I’ve linked everything in the description so go check NessBow out!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my version of Nessbow, make sure you check out her links in the description!
The next in my series will be none other than James!
Thanks so much for watching!
