summertime Maddie (work in progress)day 3-12"x12" oil on panel


Still working on this one-struggling with the mouth but maybe one more session. I find working from photos difficult  because the expression captured in a photo somehow looks contrived in a painting...
I had fun putting her in a field of flowers .
I sold the Circle Furniture piece to the owner of the store- touched it up and will deliver tomorrow!
