Christmas Watercolor Commission Portrait Commission - Update #8

I have done many updates to her face and hair over the past week as the resemblance was just not quite right. Her lips appear redder in the photo for some reason than they are in the real portrait so I am hesitant to lighten them further or they will not show as lips anymore.

As the paper need to fully dry between tweaks I tried to work throughout the day making little changes here and there modeling her features. As her face is only 1.5" from top to bottom, each little tweak required a very steady hand!
