What I Used for This Painting

"My Little Sunshine"; Watercolour paints on 300gsm watercolour paper; 6"x6"

Why This Painting is My Favorite from 2012

Every time I paint a picture I fall in love with it. However, I still have to choose one of my favourite. I think, this is the best of all. It is my daughter's portrait. I started this portrait to learn how to paint the light that glows. I love the reflected sunlight which glow the shadow side of her face in this picture. It is now hanging on my sitting room wall. Whenever I look at it, it gives me an inspiration to start a new painting.

Lessons Learned

  • I am very happy with this painting, only I think pencil line should be much lighter.

You may be able to erase some of the pencil through the dried paint -- try it gently with a soft, white eraser in a non-critical area first.
