found a wonderful pic of shannon smelling flower in reference images posted by imagenie so thought I would try my hand. Didn't do the little girl justice but had fun attempting to paint a likeness. I used painter classic and my trusty mouse. All is free handed. tools used included the airbrush feather tip, airbrush single pixel, soft chalk, small bleach, water as a smudger and blender, and runny water to create the dreamy bubbles in the background. The hair was done with many repetative (spelling) thin stokes and alternate smudging, I still have work to do on the hands and need to learn to layer...anyhow am attempting to use what I am learning about colors and tonal values in oil classes in my work, though here lately I haven't found much time to do any digital painting.
comments and suggestions are always welcome.

you've done a great job on that arm in the foreground...it's got good shape and dimension and really jumps out at you.
