'Vulnerable' Portrait Watercolour

I have been away from painting and blogging for more than a week- had been working on a job in animation.This morning my laptop just 'hung up' on me and I was forced to take a break...and I am glad I did! It was a TV grab, which I had earlier printed out in black and white for value study.But this morning I wanted to do something in colour- so I put colour in her face myself, and I am quite happy with the results! She is beautiful, but her expression holds a certain amount of vulnerability which makes her even more attractive.

My son with my lovely niece.They have been best buddies since long.I took the reference picture while they had fun in a pool, while holidaying together in HongKong.This picture was in my 'To do' list for a long time; but the details were a bit intimidating- so I kept postponing it ...until last week! This is about 9 hours of work spread over 3 days...
