Watercolor Portrait 02.2019

I have been on this journey of motherhood for the last few years now and something about the contrasting tenderness and fierceness of this photo took my breath away.

My dear friend Ali is a professional photographer and has two beautiful babies. The photo below was one she posted on social media and I was immediately drawn to it. I felt the urge to pull out my watercolor paints, dust them off and start creating again.

Below is the breathtaking reference photo and the timelapse video of the portrait process. Enjoy!
