Emotionally Connected

Last week I spoke of being connected with a subject and thank you all for your comments on this post and painting of the little dog "Bella".
Today I hope you can see my emotional connection with this watercolour of my eldest grandaughter "Tilly" (aged two and half).
Christmas time at our house, she patiently allowed her Auntie to braid her hair and I managed to capture the light on her face and the beautiful moment in time giving me a great reference for my painting. Am currently working on one of my 2 year old grandson but the painting is not behaving itself (no reflection on Thomas as he is very well behaved) and I may have to start again but I am very new to painting humans so don't mind lots of practice.
