golden haired

  The reference photo for this painting
is one of my favorite pictures I took during my trip to England.  Is it a problem that I am in England and more interested in taking pictures of people than things like Stonehenge?  I took a few token pictures of the big rocks.
This is painted on a 20 x 20 x 1 1/2" linen canvas.sold

  1. Beautiful! Just love the colors in this one. She is wonderful!
    I see nothing wrong with taking photos of strange people. Doesn't everyone do that?

  2. Love how you handled her hair Carol, nice!

  3. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une très jolie capture... Je pense que la chevelure ce cette jeune fille avait provoqué chez vous un petit "je ne sais pas" et finalement cette petite chose est devenue une belle peinture. Votre pinceau et votre feeling ont travaillé avec un beau naturel...
    Gros bisous

  4. I love how you painted her hair! And love the pinks and the whole color palette! And not a thing wrong with taking photos of whatever inspires you- wherever you are!

  5. Oh how beautiful! A deceptively simple composition. This could be my daughter when she was little or any of my granddaughters.

  6. No matter where I go, I look at people as well! My husband thinks it will get me in trouble someday!!! LOL..but .that's what we do when we see that perfect reference picture.
    I LOVE this painting of this little girl, Carol...Her pink sweater is perfect!!

  7. i love everything about this, beautifully done!!!
