Savvy - sold

'Savvy' sold
5" x 5" watercolor on paper

I love painting children's faces. I love the sparkle in their eyes and their perceptive expressions. Something I never tire of. :)

And thank you so much for all the well wishes for my son, he is doing much better now and is back in school. :)

Photo reference by the awesome Steve Evans, thank you!

  2. What a face. So much expression and knowing in those eyes. Nice cropping too. I love all the rich colour, but everything blended so smoothly. Beautiful. Glad your son is better and I love that you bought him owl cookies. Yes, a little extra spoiling is good for the soul : )

  4. Oh this is just gorgeous! What a face to paint! I can see why you wanted to. He looks very unimpressed at having his photo taken, lol! It's expressions like this that make your paintings so unique. And his deep, glossy eyes are beautiful. My favorite part is the shadows of his eyelashes across his cheeks - perfect! :0)

  6. I honestly think that your use of color is the best I've ever seen... The tones are so rich and the hues are exactly right. You brought out the tenderness and spirit of this little guy so beautifully.

  10. Oh Crystal! This is spectacular. The play between the warm and cool tones, the cast shadows on the cheeks, those reflective eyes and the smooth washes that display your confidence with value -- I admire it all! You're amazing.

  16. Those eyes are brilliant. The shadows of the lashes on his cheeks are awesome (the teens have made that word a crap word to use, but I refuse to give it up); it applies here. At first thought colored pencil, but watercolor! You are a virtuoso.
