    the girl on the left has SUCH a great expression!

  2. What adorable little girls! The expressions are great and the hand holding is a sweet touch. This is a lovely painting Anni.

  3. I have to ditto Patricia’s comment about the girls’ expressions, Imps is a perfect title for them. And I’m happy to report that I’d already seen the SCBWI book launch party. The illustration on the cover along with the title grabbed my attention immediately.

  4. These two could have come out of a Ramona book! What big personalities!

    Lovely Anni. I love the layering and the non-traditional colors of the line work.

      Thanks, Adrienne! The line work is done entirely in watercolor (no colored pencils used) using a W&N miniature brush.

    Sugar and spice!

    These two look so real! I could eat up those cheeks. Imps is such an a propos title. =)

    Anni, I love your water color, Imps. Your painting is beautiful and realistic. I can hear the giggles bubbling up from the children. So cute!
