Hi everyone!! :)
This painting was for the Valentines Day portrait challenge. It was submitted for that project but I haven't exactly completed it yet. Wondered if anyone had some suggestions.....hair is difficult!! :) I used some colour pencil a bit in the hair as well.
The project was taken from a black and white photo that Mimi submitted and we could paint this little girl however we wanted to.

Anyhow....here she is... :) I hope it's okay that i posted this again. :)

I think you've done a really good job with her naturally curly mane of hair.

She looks lovely as you have her now, what more were you thinking of doing with this little beauty?

Good execution, well redered, Wonderful ! having it in mind that it is not easy working with water colour, i think the pencil used was helpful, the picture is "alive". :)

Thank you all for the encouraging comments!!!:) I appreciate it very much!!!
I thought I would maybe add some more shadows etc. maybe darken things up a bit just to tidy it up. I'll most likely post her one more time with the finished product.

Thanks for checking out my painting.:wave:

The others in this project were amazing! Interesting how each person has a different perspective.:thumbsup:
