A wee private gift

I have decided to prepare a little New Year gift for our friends Craig and Eva (+ their daughter Lila) and use an image of them that I once took on Instagram (which I am NOT participating in any more btw, due to their dodgy business of image rights) as a base for a watercolour set of portraits.

I very seldom use watercolour technique. It requires a meticulous planning (no CmdZ option on the brush!) and a steady hand (three portraits in one! - so if I would happen to muff the third one there was no going back. Aaaaaaaaaa!!!!!) but as I was very determined to present them with something special. I think it worked very nicely and as far as I know C&E are putting it up on their walls! Result!
