Bundle Of Joy by milbisous Bundle Of Joy by milbisous
Watercolors on 9" X 12" Arches 300lbs CP watercolor paper.
Done from photo a friend had sent me.

This is another depiction of a young mother toting her child on her back, just a quick work, since I did not like to labor over the beautiful intricate designs of her outfit.
The girl's head wear and clothes style and design show she belongs to the ethnic group called Flower Hmong, living on a mountainous region, near the border of Viet-Nam and China.

All comments and critique are welcome and appreciated :bow:

Thank you for your comment. Since it was done many years ago, I no longer remember how long it took me to finish this one. But in general, it takes me longer time to make a complete sketch. Watercolors painting is usually within a day. Thank you for the fav as well. :rose:

Her expression and her smile are perfect, they shows very well the feeling of the portrait. I think you made a very good work on her dress too, you put a lot of different colours.
I like very much the tones of the background.

Bye :bye:
