What matters it how far we go?

My other art gift to Jackson for his 20th birthday this summer was a water color/ colored pencil drawing of the two of us. I used a picture we had taken at school for reference, and I didn't go for exactness in our features or in shading, I kept it more light. The glowy colors at the top and across our faces are Christmas lights I had strung up in my room :-)  

Initial sketch - trying to give our features some resemblance!

Started out with some colored pencil, I thought the watercolor going over it might create a neat effect

A little off-kilter if you compare the real picture, but I love it !
