Re: Sophia

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.

Re: Sophia

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

Re: Sophia

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.

Re: Sophia

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.
