A quick one in watercolor

I tried to do this quick painting using the new colore watercolor pencils that I was given for Christmas. Wow, they are harder to use with accuracy than I realized. I thought this photo was cute when Equiniphile posted it.

The arm, yes, I know it's too long. Oh well . . .

I love it!
I use watercolour pencils as well and I like them , for me they help to get littlier detail in because I find it hard to do so with a brush.

I've never used watercolor pencils, so I have a new-found respect for your work. Also, I don't think that arm is too long, at all!

I am glad you like it. It's not as big as I usually do; only about 9 by 7 inches.

What a beautiful job, tinyliny! I feel like I'm your designated art stalker :P Sorry!!

When I get money in my pocket, I will want one of these done if you're up for it! Probably won't be for a looong time though.

Wonderful job.. you're so talented!



EDIT: all of those sentences begin with W.... ahaha... night time crazy.

Yeah, Sky, I am going to have to pay you for all the free press you give me!
Save your money. I am not that expensive. It's the right picture that inspires me.
