You should post the unedited picture also. Watercolor looks best in.. Well color.

In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny
And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide.

Nice vivid colors. I do watercolor myself lf so if you don't mind I could given you some nice tips.

Always star with the lightest color you can get. I'm talking about something you can barely see with the eyes. And start using capes of the same color to achieve the shadows.

It's always nice to leave a space completely white as the bigger light point.

Using sharpies can bring a lot to the work but they are also quite the gamble, in your case it gave a greyish/greenish mark in fennekin's forehead. This can be remedied quite easily. By waiting, either using the sharpie after the water dries or start painting after the ink dries.

Watercolor is quite hard, I myself suck something hardcore with it . Lol

Thanks for the tips never thought to layer colours many times instead of just once.

The grey/green mark was picked up from the fineliner by accident and didnt have tissue by me to fix lol.

Think this is my 3rd water colour painting I have tried so far since I started painting last year, only used drawing paper with this one since it was for practicing.
