Sweet Portrait-- Watercolor

This adorable little girl was wonderful to paint. She's so delicate.. i thought it best to keep the washes light.. and the feeling simple.

The commission is for a local client.

This is truly lovely. Such a cute face to paint. I wish I could do portraits so I could paint my grandchildren at this age.
Nice work.

The two commissioned child portraits are delightful - so full of light just like your botanical work. Enjoyed catching upon your latest beautiful blog entries.
