Watercolour Portraits available live on site by artist and illustrator Melinda Josie. Melinda will paint your portrait while-you-wait. The delayed gratification of waiting for the result is part of the fun, capturing you in the moment without the aid of a mechanical eye. Individual, couple, BFF and family portraits welcome!
