Watercolor Women

Transparent watercolor  33 x 42 cm

This is in response to Karin Jurick's DSDF challenge
Friends, I promise, I will not tell people who these women are supposed to be.  I kind of got in over my head (no pun intended) with this one.

Hola, Carol. I'm sure your friends whose likenesses you put here will love it, cause you did a remarkable job. I tried doing blog artists in cartoon style with mine. I got some fairly good, but I blew it on yours. I was working from the thumbnail, and I guess I should have put a camera on your head. I apologize but this one almost got me. Check my blog and WIP and see what I mean.

I really like how sincere your interpretation turned out. Love the colors, composition and the way you handled the paint. Nicely done.

This is my absolute favorite! I like your fresh approach with the use of watercolor. I like your depiction of strong women who all seem to have their own personality and story which I'm sure you're are familiar with. Well done!
