A Portrait for Today

"Cora" - 4" x 5 1/2" original watercolor on Arches paper
This is my teaching colleague's little girl. I tried to capture the backlight. Had to go in with some white watercolor to help the wisps of hair. My daughter had the same kind of hair when she was a baby. My dad called her "Skeeziks", a name fondly used by my Grandpa.
Number 5 of 15.
