My daughter was out for coffee with my husband and I – in between colouring and bites of cookie she would stare out the window.

I struggle with cooler lights in portraits so then throw the frustration of kid’s abnormal proportions and huge cheeks and bam… recipe for a portrait I needed to tackle.

I’m pleased with how this study came together – of course I didn’t work much on the hair or clothing as the concern was more to do with form and lighting around the face, but I almost like the semi-finished look. I’m thinking I will try this portrait again in a few months – after getting back into the flow of painting a bit more and see if I make any improvements.
