Pensive

Once again I had my granddaughter pose for me.  She's always willing to make me happy.  lol
I used my Rembrandts and terry Ludwig pastels for this portrait.  They are always so creamy and blends so well for my skin tones.  Skye is always a pleasure to paint.

  2. This is so truly beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!
    I am always impressed with how you do the eyes and skin but the way you have her hair falling down from the hairline looking absolutely natural, amazes and delights me. I hope you like this as much as I do.

  9. What a beautiful girl and a beautiful portrait. It can be tricky when the model tilts their head but you did a great job.

  11. Qué suerte tienes de tener una nieta tan atractiva y dispuesta a que la inmortalices con estos magníficos retratos. Te felicito, por las dos cosas: Por la nieta y la pintura.
    Un fuerte abrazo, Hilda!

  13. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    Je suis un peu en retard pour venir écrire un petit commentaire. Il est vrai qu'en cette saison, je ne suis pas très présente sur mon ordinateur, lui préférant mes longues balades dans la nature.

    Ce portrait est une fois encore une oeuvre exceptionnelle. J'aime la manière que ta fille incline sa tête. Cela lui apporte une grande douceur.
    Le travail de la chevelure est exceptionnel. Quel talent ma chère !
    Tu as une grande dextérité également de capturer le regard. Tu le captures en ajoutant son âme...
    Très joli portrait ! Bravo.

    Gros bisous 🌸
