One hour watercolor portrait

This is from Wetcanvas' All Media Event weekly paint which I used to be a regular at but now only join in occasionally. Anyway, I had an unplanned day off today and decided to paint this 1 year old boy. I only gave myself an hour but went over about 10 minutes. I really enjoy doing these little watercolor portraits and I've got a little collection piled on my desk. ;)
4 x 4 inches
