I have been taking art lessons/work sessions with Janice, my old dance teacher. This portrait of my knight character (looking way younger, thinner and prettier than I usually like to draw him. I like him more, as a character, when he starts having his midlife crisis.)
Drawn in pencil and colored with watercolors and blue inks, I was trying to capture an almost stained glass feel. (Unfortunately it did not scan well, scanners do not like water colors nearly as much as I do.) If I were to make an all out definitive portrait of Theo it would be a stain glass window.
Not sure how long this took. Fifteen minutes? (The sketching and the coloring happened on different days.)
