Mother and Daughter, Watercolor

This is my latest portrait commission, Mother on the left, daughter on the right. The source photo was dark, so I manipulated it on my computer, and also manipulated a change to the daughter's shoulder, and shirt folds, so as to relax the daughter's pose...you'll see, I'll go ahead and also post the before and after photos and then the painting. I also changed the background from the busy one you see and used another view of the river from a snapshot the dad gave me...This was mutually agreed upon and ultimately the best idea. Further, the mother's necklace was lowered as it had slipped back during our photo session. Also, it was requested of me to "V" the daughter's shirt so as not to look so young (her comment). All comments and critiques are welcome, all digital alterations and/or manipulations are also welcome. I need to hear what you think. I have several more commissions in line to do and learn so much from each and every one, thus improving as I go. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Oh yes, this was painted on Arches, cold pressed paper, full sheet, 22.5" x 30"...W&N watercolor paint.
