Watercolor

This is my first post and I would like feedback on one of my first attempts at a watercolor type print from a photograph. Thanks!

Re: Watercolor

This is my first attempt to turn a digital image into a watercolour painting. I used all the Swampy's techniques and I also intermingled a bit of the impressionist plug in.
It is my sweet grand-daughter called Sara.
What do you think? Is there something that could improve this first attempt?
Are there any tutorials apart from the excellent one of Swampy?

Re: Watercolor

OMG, Arab!!!

First, welcome to RTP!

You get a gold star on that painting. Outstanding first watercolor! That is truly something that needs to be printed on canvas and framed. Quite a treasure.
