Rowena, yowza! that's a stunning example of watercolor. beautiful technique. How do you get those irregular shape splats. Is that a brush you designed?
It's terrific. Really love this and it is totally convincing as water color. what a portrait! stunning work. she is so cute.

Breathtaking. The look shows the desperation of that terrible moment. Pure emotion. Congratulations.

Marvellous! It's also a show of fantastic skill with AR watercolor, certainly not an easy tool to be used ...

Eighty, thanks for kind words... no I haven't got my iPad yet but its gonna happen soon so watch this space :D:D

Gz, coming from you mate (with your great skills) this is high praise indeed, thankya, thankya :D
As to the brushes... I am too dumb to make my own, so these are the default ones, or maybe even someone else's presets... but I shall find the brush and pass it on to you.

Lima, thank you :)

Caesar, thank you for your kind praise sir! :D:cool:

I think it may be that brush I made called a paint splatter. Which is kind of funny if I am sitting here saying "oh, I have to have that one." :)

Gz, you are right, thats the brush I used... and also used a brush called 'Splat', plus WC 'Delicate on Dry' for the bigger hair blobs.

Barnburner, thanks, I am pleased you like it :)
