Portrait Little Girl in Plaid Shirt

15x11 watercolor from last Tuesday's portrait workshop as instructed by Stephie Butler; photo ref courtesy PMP.  We were to put down clean water first on dry paper then add light values of cerulean blue, permanent rose, and aureolin, let dry, then go around the little girl's face then hair.  Mixes of the primaries created the mauve tones and other secondary colors as seen throughout in this vignette.
