Deep in thought

Originally, I was painting a portrait of my granddaughter but as I was painting her I realized I made her a bit older than she is but I liked the way it was coming so I left it instead of correcting her.  So now, it's a portrait of a girl "Deep in thought".. lol

  18. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    Je ne suis pas toujours présente ces temps-ci ! Comment vas-tu ? Je te remercie pour ton très gentil message laissé sur mon blog.

    J'aime beaucoup ce dernier portrait. Un très joli pastel. J'aime le regard profond de ses yeux clairs. Tu as admirablement travaillé sa chevelure. Bravo !
    Je pense aussi que tu as capturé toute sa sensibilité et sa douceur.

    Je t'embrasse affectueusement et te souhaite un bel été.
    Bisous
