Watercolor Portrait - Tutorial Try-outs

Couldn't resist Kristin Dudish's Tutorial Try-outs challenge this week to make a Watercolor Portrait based on the tutorial from the Grow Creative blog.
The transferred, posterized picture looks like a paint by number, doesn't it?
Those little blonde cuties are our niece and nephew from Seattle.

What an interesting technique! Your painting looks great.

Your results were great - I love the blue. And, such a fun (and completely adorable) photo to use! I'm so glad you "couldn't resist" playing along :) Hooray!

The painting comes out so well in that lovely blue, and I'm glad you enjoyed the tutorial as much as I did. I didn't think of doing a painting of two people - it works well. It's so nice to be able to paint a portrait of family members - I'm making a card from mine to give to my granddaughter, and you are probably going to do the same for your family. Makes it a double pleasure.

I love what you did with this technique - I agree with Cat - it looks like a block print :)

I had so much fun with this technique.

It came out fabulous! I had to try it out too when I saw all the entries for it. :)
