Favorite Things, 16 x 12
Well, technically this is not a workshop demo, since I had to pull it together at home, having wiped off lots of the bottom half at the workshop I taught 2 weeks ago on painting children. I like, however, the sketchy quality of the piece, and decided to quit before I lost that effect. I see some things I would change -- for instance, the book could be simplified, and I don't think I like the pink border being the same size as the pink dress straps. This sketch was done from a photo of Sarah - pictured in yesterday's post - when she was nearly two. I am almost finished with the portrait study of Evie (sketch was posted several weeks ago), and I will share it when complete!
