Ellie in the Fall


I've finally completed this. I had my doubts how well this one would turn out but I'm pretty satisfied with my results.

Jeanette said...

Just beautiful Billie. Your first? Never!! You can do anything!

Billie Crain said...

Jeanette, I wish! I am beginning to feel more comfortable with this medium, tho.

Mary said...

Billie, i would be very satisfied, watercolor was meant for someone like you.

Hi Billie! I saw this in the WC forum. It is really good. I think you have a knack for portraits. This may be your first baby portrait, but it would be a shame if it was your last.

You did well on this baby. I have painted a couple of baby portraits in the past and I don't want to do anymore. ;-)
I like the light and you did well on the delicate features.

Hi Billie!
Wow-this is so lovely! Thanks for not only sharing your beautiful results... but also how you got there. I know some day I will dabble more into wc-and you will be my inspiration!

Billie Crain said...
