Haley At The Beach

Good Morning everyone and hope y'all are having a wonderful Friday. I have only been practicing  painting people , so nothing brand new to show here. I  hope this changes soon.  I though I would show a painting I did a couple of weeks ago.  This is my youngest Granddaughter Haley.  For the painting I used a photo of her on the beach. She is looking into the sun thus the squinting and just out of the water.  I am very happy with this portrait because I  feel everything clicked  in here. From the skin tone, how the hair looks, her eyes and how expressive this is.  
   I am going to start a Painting Friends challenge soon in oil and hope to be able to have it in here by the weekend.  That is if it is any good, I have tried to do it in colored pencil and watercolor, neither turned out well.


  1. Nora,
    You should be proud of this painting. I find portraits scary, but you were certainly up to the challenge. I love how you managed to convey the sunlight upon her hair. Well done. I will be looking forward to you oil painting.
