watercolour sketch – Lucy (Lulu, sister)

My lil’ sister Lucy, or Lulu as my son insists on calling her. I bought new paper and since it’s a better quality than the last it absorbed the paint differently, hence the very sketchy/streaky quality in the beginning which i had to learn to work with. I particularly enjoyed getting lost in her huge eyes and am happy with the shadows and highlights there. Her skin colour was a challenge as she’s ‘caramel’ (her words), with a range of browns pinks yellows and reds, and i haven’t quite captured the colours correctly (a bit too much yellow) but you get the idea i hope (and a bit of the attitude!).
