I completed this awhile back but due to it being given as a Xmas gift, I waited till today to post the finished painting. This was done on a 22" x 30" sheet of Kilimanjaro watercolor paper. I an anxious to see the reaction mostly from the kids themselves !

I was asked recently to do watercolors of a client's grandchildren. I don't normally do portraits but I considered it a challenge and decided to take a crack at it. This is my result. The client is happy and excited to give them to the parents. this is a snap shot in time. There are baby teeth and one is losing them. Children's skin is very smooth and fresh and young of course and interesting to paint. I have never met the children only was given photos of them. I believe that I captured their essence according to the grandmother. That's all that matters. I mixed various strengths of yellow ochre and alizarin crimson for basic skin tone. I started to render the eyes first as my anchor to the whole face. I found the mouths to be challenging to get just right. I think that now, after doing this first set, I will be more at ease to do more if asked.
