This is delightful Catherine. I admire your skill and you've certainly captured real emotion between two beautiful children. You say it's oversize - how large is the portrait?

Charming image, super technique, great gallery

I agree - you can feel the love between them. Beautiful portrait and you have a great gallery Catherine.

Thanks Jane. The portrait is 55 x 76 cms including the background space.

They look a couple of rascals! Lovely vibrant and characterful painting and a great addition to your wonderful gallery.

I love your natural approach to portraits Catherine. A wonderful painting.

Many thanks for your comments.

Absolutely beautiful, you have really captured the love between these two children, I bet they were probably fighting ten minutes after that pose ha ha. Stunning portrait.

Beautiful portrait Catherine, I love the light you have captured .

Perfection in watercolour portraiture Catherine!
