Watercolour Portrait of My Little Girl

I did watercolour portraits of my son & daughter in 1999 & 2001 respectively, when both were 2 years old. The portraits were framed next to photos taken by their daddy (really have to thank my dear hubby for capturing countless beautiful moments throughout the years). 



Allocated a space for my youngest daughter's portrait but it is still empty

My elder kids' friends noticed the portraits on the wall. Some even asked them: "Why there's no portrait of your little sister?"

Well...I was really guilty as I kept telling my little girl that I would do one for her too. But the longer I delayed, the less confident I became since I hardly paint nowadays. 

However, last weekend I decided to pick up my paintbrush again for this long overdue project...

 It took me 3 days to work on it...including tracing & sketching to study her features

And I am truly glad that I have finally fulfilled my promise to my little girl!!! 

My hubby bought me this Rowney watercolour set from UK before we got married. Unbelievable that it is still in such a good condition!

Can't believe 12 years have passed since I last painted my children's portrait! How time flies and my 3 kids are growing up right before my eyes!!!

These portraits will be given to them on their wedding days.
It is a gift of love for them to treasure & cherish for a long long time.

夫人,将来孩子们结婚当日我希望亲自把画送给他们 。只怕到时他们还没流泪我已先哭了。。。不是舍不得那幅画,而是舍不得他们啊!

Eunice, 謝謝你的鼓勵和讚美。其實我原本不是很有信心因为实在太久没用水彩画肖像了。当我涂了肤色后,小女兒問我为什么她看起来那么黑,令我急忙用水尽量弄浅颜色。

Wow, you have incredible skills! What lovely gifts for your children :)

Thank you Sunny-Cookie. I am so happy I have finally done one for my little girl. I told my kids in the future I shall paint my grandchildren's portraits LOL.
