This is lovely; I'm trying to figure out how to watercolor and dealing with the pallet is my biggest challenge so far. I really like the subtle ways that you used the blue and added touches of the brighter red/orange. I'll be using this as a reference! :)

Sometimes I am amazed at how some absolutely stunning artworks have no recognition whatsoever on this site. This is one of those times.

It's beautiful work with watercolors! I know how tough a technique it is myself, and I think these portraits are STUNNING!
