Portraits 1, 2 and 3 for 29 Faces in February



I was so in love with this photo of my grand daughter that I knew that I had to try to draw it.

 

 She and her brother were blowing bubbles in my backyard.  They were so engrossed in their  bubble fun that they were unaware of me and my camera.  When I called her name, she looked up and I captured her far away and slightly startled look. .. like a deer. 


Playing around with some digital cut outs.
I think this is my favorite.


My first watercolor portrait. 
I am afraid I lost my little girl along the way.
 Let's repeat that... it's my first.

Linking up with  Paint Party Friday.

  8. Beautiful job and I can't get over the face. So beautiful, the original and the artwork. I especially like how you didn't overdo the lips (my flaw at times). Less is more, right?

    1. Thanks Dea. I thought watercolor would be harder, not that it is easy by all means. I tend to make it muddy.
