Pieces of Sand

This is a watercolor portrait of my daughter that I just finished! I’ve been working on it for a couple months. My goal in this piece is to capture the sensory experience of discovering sand for the first time. I plan to document several of her “first discoveries” through watercolor. I’m playing with the idea of contrasting lost and found edges to convey the idea of ephemeral memories.
