New Year Resolution

Normally my resolution is not to make any resolutions, but this year decided to tackle two, faces and watercolours.What am I doing?
This is my second watercolour of 2012, unfortunately I made my daughters cheeks too crimson alizarin, looks like a rash. Any suggestions? Have tried damping and spongeing, also tried Gouache over it but it’s still to RASH.
This is my first painting of 2012, I used an image from, which you can find at
I am reasonably pleased with the result, but obviously there is huge room for improvement.
