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.
