Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches

This is from a Facebook photo posted by one of my friends, of their daughter reading. It was another one of those "it's almost a painting already" images, but that's probably because he's a very skilled photographer.

It wound up not looking quite like her, but I really enjoyed doing this one because so many of the things I've been taught started flowing naturally. I could almost hear some of my teachers commenting on what my next brush stroke should be. I even laid out a range of tones on the palette before I started, and followed all sorts of sage advice. It's rare when it all comes together, but hopefully it will start happening more frequently.

You have a great talent for capturing portraiture from pics.

You could market this . . . hmmm, an idea?
Can I hire you?

Regardless . . .
nicely done.
