This portrait was a real journey for me, I learned so much of painting it. Many, many layers where added. The last layers I used yellow ocre. This color is opaque so I could not use it for the previous layers. Now her hair is a bit blonder and I also put some of the yellow ocre in the face and ears to tone down the red collors a bit and the blue became a bit greenish. Only slightly.
I had a commission of drawing portraits of her and her brother for her grandmothers birthday. And once fnished I decided to also paint a portrait of the little girl with watercolor paint.
The size is A4, 20x30 cm and I used hotpress watercolor paper.

For the first time I try to paint a portrait with watercolor paint.
I use very diluted paint, layer on layer, a very slow process of building color.
No details added yet, so I have a lot of work to do.
