"Make A Wish"
Image size 7.5" x 11"
I had my daughter pose for this quite a while ago, but have been too scared to paint the painting. This is a study of what will be a large painting (hopefully soon). I am always hesitant to paint people, but actually enjoyed this project.
My original idea was not to have her holding a cupcake, but since tomorrow is her birthday, I thought it was an appropriate object to place in her hand. I really made a mess of her hair and I'm afraid she will cringe when she sees this, but I promise to do a better job on the real painting. She has beautiful curly hair which she usually straightens so I'm happy that it's curly for my reference photo.
For the big painting, I will probably use warmer colors. The overall feeling of this is a bit too cool for me.
Anyway, happy 29th birthday my dear, sweet, baby girl!!!
