Looks good! It's SO hard to do portraits in watercolor...I was working on one this weekend and it just doesn't look right if you lift too much to correct. I have a palette that's just non-staining paints that I use for portraits

More colour- on their faces- especially lips/eyes and warm the skin tones up considerably. The colours need to be stronger or the background will dominate.
Such good shapes- keep going!

Re: Her three sons, wip, CC enjoyed

looking great! Baby nose bottom ( septum, ball etc.,) should be more flat.. mouth of baby should be wider and a touch closer to nose bottom..
