  1. It's beautiful Arti. :) I love your colors, it doesn't look like you're struggling to me. But I know what you mean, dark skin tones in watercolor is tough!

  6. What a lovely capture of her expression, Arti! I find myself wondering what she is thinking. I think it is beautiful and see no evidence of your struggles with values.
