Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This portrait of Lyla was commissioned by her grandmother as a gift to Lyla's parents. I was provided with a few photographs to choose from. What a difficult choice; such a joyful little girl! After selecting one, I worked the pencil sketch and then in several stages, painted layers of watercolor.
