IF - remember

somehow i remember this childhood picture of mine. i don't know why, but this has always been my favorite picture. maybe because this innocent little me represent my innocent self perfectly: one who never quite understand what the world really is... (wow, i'm playing philosophy.)

Wow...you draw very well, and have such control over your washes. Very impressive watercolor.

Gorgeous work! And i love seeing the reference photo. It does prompt me to ask why you didn't paint yourself in your white dress...the quintessential "innocence marker". But that would not have crossed my mind had I not seen the photo...it is a terrific piece!
