small bait, big fish

I decided I better brush up on painting children since I am teaching it this coming Saturday.  I enjoy trying to capture a child in a spontaneous moment.  One thing that makes this painting successful is that  it has good angles.  I learned from Nancy Franke that you need to look for lots of X's and Z's and V's in the figure.  It just adds to the energy and leads to a more interesting composition. This is painted on an 8 x 8 x 2" canvas.
