Inma's small portrait


watercolor, 2.5" x 3.5"

I had a lot of fun painting this little thing yesterday. The textures of Inma's clothing and capturing her pretty hair was especially fun to do. I took some liberties with her hair only because I think the textures and warm colors played off her green sweater really well. If you're interested in joining the party, check out Julia Kay's Portrait Party.

Thank you Inma for letting me use your reference pic!

I love this portrait! I can not believe you got all of that detail in that tiny sized image. Outstanding!

The time spent in the details of the sweater really paid off! I can feel the texture just by looking at it :)

This is great. I love the composition and how you nestled her in the corner of the canvas like that.
