My Elle Bell

My 14 yr old daughter Ellen She doesn't like me taking photos of her and didn't like any of the ones I took as reference for a portrait of her. So, basically I painted this behind her back.

I am so happy with this one!!! I love her rainbow hair

She's pretty happy with it too


title: My Elle Bell

size: 8"x6"

Arches 300lb cold pressed

thanks for peeking

as always, comments and critiques welcomed

Oh Em, you have excelled yourself...That hair is to die for!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder she likes it!

One small nit....It bothers me that her arm looks chopped off, will you be cropping.....I hope not as I really like the composition...Just wish the rest of her arm was painted in.

How proud she will be in years to come to show this to her friends and say that you did it! It is priceless!

I agree absolutely beautiful!

But I see a sleeve of her blouse not a book, am I having a bleached blond moment?
