Watercolor Portrait

Beautiful sweet portrait of small, delicate and tiny client! She was great to paint... and the washes were kept soft to stay fresh and young.

What a beautiful, delicate portrait. I love the way you handled her hair and the background ...such nice contrast to the smooth skin.

I loved the first one and love this one, too, with just a touch of color adding a bit extra - still those eyes are what makes this one and the luminosity of the paint. Beautiful!
Congratulations on the happy buyers, too!! That always helps!

thank you barbara and rhonda. i think this portrait is quite successful -- and i was glad to see the results. it was a challenge.. but ended up soft and dreamy.. just like the little girl.
