I haven't posted in a while, but it was suggested to me that I post this latest portrait....just recently finished it.

12" x 12" on wrapped canvas


C&C welcomed

This turned out really nice! I like the lighting on the hair, and her blue eyes!

I'm haven't done any portraits, so take my advice with a grain of salt...but I wonder if there should be a little darker shadow under her chin, and maybe her eyebrows shouldn't look quite so thin/plucked since she's a child?

It's still a very sweet painting! you did a great job on her face, she looks so young and angelic!

She looks like a sweetie, caught in a moment of looking up from picking her little daisies. :)

Dee hi, boy have I missed you girl! This is fabulous, love the halo effect glowing around her hair, and the expression well you caught this so well.
Lovely blues eyes too, you are really rockin' these days, such a joy to see what you've been doing, Love it!!!

I love the expression. It reminded me very much of the child angels in old paintings of Raphael and other painters. She even has a "halo" around her hair :)

Elaine & Claudia....thank you!

The halo effect of the backlighting was one of the things that really caught me (along with those gorgeous blue eyes) when I looked at the ref pic!

@Elaine...I lurk some, but my muse was on vacation for a while...and I became even more reclusive...it happens sometimes.

What a lovely depiction of wide-eyed innocence. And what beautiful eyes!

Lovely work .I think the pupil needs to be larger as she has a starring look this is what happens when pupils are small.The eyebrow need to be soft in young children.
