Another Watercolor

This year I'm in Advanced Watercolor, my third semester of taking watercolor. YAY! ^_^ Being in Advanced Watercolor, I'm allowed to decide what I paint. But the catch is it has to be fine arts like, so NO illustrations. Sad face. My teacher used to allow Illustration majors do illustrations, but he kept thinking they were doing homework in his class instead.
Anyways, I chose to do portraits of loved ones. So I decided to do a picture of my brother and niece. It's such a beautiful picture, I love it a LOT! So I thought I would paint it. ^_^
Of course it doesn't look exactly like the photo, but then if I wanted that I wouldn't of painted it I would have just enlarged the photo and left well enough alone. It was fun painting it and a little nerve-wracking. As I progressed and saw that all was well so far, I got nervous wondering if I'd mess it up. But I think it's pretty well done. What do you think?

Let me tell you, babies are HARD to draw. And HARD to paint. I think this is the second baby I've EVER tried to draw realistically. I can see the mistakes ...

It was really fun painting my brother's hair, and I couldn't help but giggle as I painted in my brother's chest hair. ^_^

Alright, have a GREAT weekend lovelies! ^_^
