I owe Phyllis' daughter for what I did to her picture in the manipulation challenge.
This is a watercolor (I think) rendition.

That's really impressive!

How did you get the effect on the shirt - is it all freehand or do you have a secret trick? (Of course, if you tell us then it won't be secret any more...)

I like the waterpainting...didn't really notice at first though, till I read it was a water painting...just thought you used a neat technique on the edges.

The dog looks much more like a painting than the girl does.

Leah,
The secret's out and here it is.

First erase the design on the girl's shirt (pajamas?) Then I used butterfly brush using colors from the original pajama.

I think that you retained the naturalness of her skin beautifully. Love your butterflies!

Nicely done, and changing the PJ's worked out wonderfully! I like the softer colors you chose for them. It really works well with the photo.

Beautiful rendering of this photo! The composition is so much stronger with the background blown out (or looking like the paper) The colors are soft and subtle. One of the best watercolor looks I've seen!
