Christmas Watercolor Portrait Commission - Baby Update #3


Several layers of color have been added to her eyes and lips but still more layers to go and edges and highlights need to be softened for both. They look a little harsh right now but once the background & hat are done I can better judge the values and how much they need to be softened and highlighted.

A more rosy glow has been added to her face and may be tweaked further but again I will wait until the background and hat have been finished to better judge the values.

The first layer of the background has been added and several more will be added to achieve a darker green at the top and slightly lighter green at the bottom near her sweater. Once the background has dried, I can then start on that red hat!
