Water Baby, a work in progress
MHFoundationQuarters has commissioned me to do a painting of her then 4 year old daughter, playing in the water park.
I will post here some of the progress.
First; rough sketch, then transfer to watercolor paper, then painted background and then girl. This is my preliminary study, not final painting.
the final draft
I do like the hints of blue... As anyone would know, blue is very aesthetic, especially when it's toned down and not BLUE so much as it is blue.
The final draft is just precious, much more accurate. If this were my daughter I'd cry on receiving it. :) And the floating? I concur. It needs SOME sort of soft noise back there... But I'm running low on sleep so it's hard for me to come up with a whole lot of ideas. (SIGH)
I'll be in touch!
I think the last one is great!!! I agree on the background, it needs something. I will love whatever you do, it's your interpretation & your artistic license!
You know...I personally like the original background...maybe not go all the way up the page?? Start out at the bottom and phaze it out as you get closer to her head? No idea beyond that. Its a sweet picture!

tinyliny....its adorable! And beyond realistic!!! Fantastic job!
Finished Water Baby! Me so happy!
I finished Water Baby today and I couldn't be happier with the finished results. I took a lot of risks in workging with some techiniques that I really have no prior experience with. I had an image of how I wanted it to look when finished and except for the fact that I went outside of the masking tape and got some paint on the border (which was supposed to be pristine 2 inches of white, with deckled edge) , the finished piece lives up to my expectations. I can honestly say, that it's the best piece I have ever done. Forgive me for crowing. I put SOOOO much work into this and there are so many times that big work does not necessarily equal big success. So I am over the moon happy it worked this time.
Oh. My. Goodness. Tinyliny. You are so talented. Geez.
I adore the water splashing by her feet in the finished product. Well, I adore the whole thing but especially the water by her feet. Fantastic work.
I would agree that I think this is your best work to date. Bravo!
Caroline, this is the second time you've made me cry. You're messing up my tough farm girl image. :wink:
I absolutely LOVE IT! You captured it perfectly. It's one of my favorite pics I've taken of her and you definitely outdid it. I can't wait to see my hubby's face when he gets it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! :D
I love all of your work and I am partial since it is my kiddo, but whether it is or isn't your best ever I am honored you feel that strongly about it.
