I am calling this one finished. I worked some more on the fur and don't want to add any more washes to the skin tones. It is easy to go too dark on babies and look unnatural. Again, the photo background is a little darker than real life but I had to darken it to get the skin tones to look accurate to the painting.

I just have a few corrections on the fur to do to call this one finished. The fine details of the fur were tricky because the watercolour paint wouldn't hide the underpainting. I had to use white acrylic to paint the fine hairs of the fur. I just have to go back and add some greys to them to blend them a little better and this one will be finished. The photo is a little greyer overall and the skin tones a little darker than the actual painting.
