More thinking would have improved the status of this painting.
8X10 Acrylics on canvas I had the idea of transferring the girls to the canvas with transfer paper to preserve the details of the Celtic designs. Unfortunately this did not work out, but the beauty of acrylics is that I can keep painting over.


Thanks for the nice photos Dawn!

Direct and somehow very genuine. I like the narrative of the girl watching her companion's steps and the grandparents looking on. The details are sufficient to add authenticity.

Beautiful composition. The expression of the girl in black is excellent.

Very nice composition and color arrangement, and I agree that you've caught the expression of the girl in black perfectly. I like how you've included the onlookers. I agree about the beauty of acrylics! Perfect for making radical changes and corrections.
