I drew this picture for a watercolour painting I started just last year but haven’t worked on it since. I posted it to one of my groups and asked for their critique. I knew something was “off”. Anyway, I got a lot of great feedback (thanks guys) and I will be reworking the drawing. To rework it, I will use tissue paper and make the changes there rather than on my original drawing. I think it is a pretty good likeness of my granddaughter and if I can incorporate the changes suggested it should be an even better likeness. If I can’t improve the drawing without messing her up, I will go ahead with what I have.
I am using a quarter sheet of 140lb cold press Arches watercolour paper. I masked the hair to preserve some of the highlights. If I change the drawing, I will start the painting again but I’m not disregarding this one just yet.
