Amidst the Mustard Flowers Child's Watercolor Portrait

This is a little painting I did today for fun with my friends on Wetcanvas. It measures 7 x 11 and took two hours to paint. Watercolor on Arches 140 lb cold press. This is the third portrait I've done in the last couple of months where I feel my watercolor portrait style is really becoming comfortably me.

Illustration Friday "Disguise"

Here's a little quick watercolor I did for IF's theme disguise. It was really quick and fun and I need to remember this when I do all of my illustrations. I always like the results of quick and loose better than drawn out and tight...Thanks for looking.

Illustration Friday "Beginning"

My illustration for beginning is about starting a new school. I attempted to make the little girl at the end of the line stand out more. I'm not sure if this was completely successful or not. I wonder if less bus and more kids would be more effective? Feedback welcome. thanks!
