    Bold features. Wonderful.

  27. Nice….I don’t any the mud. I think sometimes we are too often our own harshest critics.

  28. Great energy jumps from this painting. It’s beautiful.

  29. J is beaming. Love the joy in this!

  30. It is not easy to give the expression of a face with watercolour, at least for me! But you are doing great painting, and nothing disappeares in the face. Fascinated me. Thank you dear Elena, love, nia

  31. Is he scratching a kittens belly?

    But, still gorgeous! I honestly have the most trouble with watercolor browns – keeping them from becoming opaque and chalky is a challenge. I think that if you’re going to mix any color with the browns, you’ve got to stick to a transparent hue – like Alizarin. Still love the painting you did!
