My daughter-in-law took this photo of her niece, my granddaughter, and it just called out to be painted. I have been doing watercolor underpaintings on my pastel paper for a while now, usually very loose and not trying to get anything very clear. This time I did a much more detailed watercolor, with black ink loosely over the background, then added the pastel. Most of the background is the watermedia painting while the figure (and all those drops!) are pretty much covered with pastel. I keep seeing little tweaks calling me every time I walk by the painting . . . do you have any to suggest? Thank you, Lisa, for the reference.
