Little girl



I posted this painting mostly finished a little while back. Well, I've finished it Heres a decent upclose look at the face, thought I've never really had a good digital image thate show the brush strokes very well. At least you can see some of the strong reds that were pushed in the face and I like the ear.

Brilliant and extraordinary work, as always, Dave! I am always dazzled by your talent. I would say more, but I would run out of room to write before I would run out of adjectives... ;o)

Brilliant again!!! Your figurative work is so emotional. What suface do you paint on? It seems so smooth and seamless.
Keep up the good work.

Interesting. As a beginner I would expect to find cooler hints of green or blue in shadow area under chin. Just goes to prove that a master is allowed to break the rules!

Thanks very much for the comments. Williams- most of the strong reds are reflecting from the bright red shirt.
Naturegirl- I pretty much always paint oil on board I really like the smooth surface that gives me a lot of control. I felt like I was fighting the texture will canvas always, so smooth is perfect for me to get the details I like.
