Hi ArcticRose

I am glad you found inspiration in my photo. I took a series of photos of my daughter a year ago. We had a lot of fun that day.

I like the colors and you catched the look in her eyes!

I have attached a pastel drawing I did from one of the photos.

Thank you Fagan!:)

Thank you Marianne! It was her eyes that got me. Love her face!
Your pastel drawing in beautiful!...you captured her real eye color...I took a few liberties to go with the color scheme..Glad you like it!:) :D

Hi ArcticRose

My mother showed your painting to me and I think it is very beautiful, wish I looked that good in real life;)

I some times earn a little pocket money when I sit as a model in some of my mothers art classes. I am 16 now and think I will take art history in high school next year.

Thanks for painting me !

I like it a lot!!!!! It's the kind of painting that one would enjoy on one's wall even if it isn't anyone we know.

Wow...I love it... very cute. The mouth is great... it's shows a little attitude (kind of like pursed lips)... nice eyes and super blending... was this painted wet in wet?

Hi Jester...the background and hat were painted wet in wet..the face colors were applied slowly with drying time...thanks for looking and commenting!:)
