You're the Sunshine by Veronnikka You're the Sunshine by Veronnikka
This is a portrait of my mother in her twenties. It's a gift for her. :hug: I chose a really neat black-and-white photo for reference.

Dig the wash quality; has a good feel. You should submit to watercolorists.:sun::skull:

What a wonderful artwork! I like everything about it: the colors, the pose, the combination of the clean lines and the blurry background. Everything fits together so well :)

Very beautiful portrait, i love your color choices and the mix of soft, traditional "water color-ness" and the neat sharp lines used in the details.

What a great gift! I'm given people portraits of their children before and it always seems to work out well. Still, this one is especially good. I really like the choice of a nice bright lively color for someone in their 20s. The composition and detail are awesome (really nice eyes). It's a really nice picture to look at. I agree with Ladies62 here- no matter what the family may say (in earnest of politely) this really is excellent work!

Thank you for your nice words:) Although I don't remember my mom in her twenties, fortunately she hasn't changed much since. The bright orange also reflects what she is like now.

Well, it really captures a very lively spirit. I'm afraid my own work might have a bit of an "archival" quality to it relative to your work. I'm really impressed by your piece. I think I may have to reference your work for an upcoming wedding present I'm working on- that is, I'll have to try to capture the kind of spirit you've got in yours. Clearly, I'm just a little jealous :) Again, good work.

I've been using watercolor for barely a year,and there's still too much to learn. If you like this style, check out this person :iconaurorawienhold:. This picture was inspired by her works.

Ah yes, Aurora W. She's one of my fav's on here. It's a tough style to get right if you ask me :)

She's very luck to receive this. She's going to tell you how good it is and maybe you'll think that's just mom-speak. but it is good. Very. Very, very.

Thank you! I do hope she likes it, but no, I'm not going to think that as mom-speak. I would be even happier than her to know that she likes my painting. :)
