I finally did it! I did one of my BFA illustrations in watercolor! I really enjoyed the planning and painting process. It was really nice to be able to see the whole painting, step back, and focus in to work a little smaller. On my previous digital pieces I'd have to zoom way in just to see anything at full scale, and then I could only see a small part of the whole. It was really nice to see the whole thing progressing at the same time. It makes me wonder just how big a difference a nice big screen would make in my

When I painted it I didn't want the saturation to get out of control because watercolor can be very vibrant and I wanted the piece to harmonize. Now that it's finished I want to do some touch ups to saturation. Mostly in the sash, flowers, and the hat.
I did do some tweaking to the darker darks, but I'm not sure if there is enough to get a good sense of perspective in the foreground. Your thoughts?
Trust me, I like it. :)
