What I have done yesterday. Love to paint children and this little girl looked so cute I just had to sketch her.

It is a little bit enhanced, so it looks like charcoal, but it is just a hb pencil, painted totally freehand.I am afraid to show a ref for copyright reasons... but I am happy, she looks like herself.

Thank you for looking.

What an adorable child she is. You painted her very well. Love the eyes and the texture of the dress and background.

Nice portrait Annie, when you say enhanced what did you do? Sharpen?

Thank you for your encouragement omniartz, Smokin,Aggie,Janet, barryt.

This is the only support I have in my painting so it means so much to me.
But I am enjoying your work people also, so please, keep creating.:)

Barry, this is just a normal sketching paper, 9x12cm.. but to post it, I had to resize it in the psp program. When you resize the image, it gets all blured, so a bit of sharpenning is a must and then I enhanced the lines by darkenning them a bit, because scan make the sketch so greyish and unatractive.
Hope I am clear in my explanation.
