JUBILATION

After taking many reference photos of my granddaughter, she was getting so silly and she started to laugh... I guess at me!! ha.ha. but I kept clicking away and I took this shot which was perfect.  Although I don't like painting teeth, I took my time and happy with the results.

  4. Very well done ! Teeth are so difficult and so is the position of her head ( at least for me ), but you did an amazing work ! Love the spontaneity of the pose :-)

  12. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    C'est un émerveillement à chaque fois !
    Je suis subjuguée par ce joli portrait de ta petite-fille qui est très belle entre autre !
    Un délicieux moment de partage entre toi et elle qui se ressens dans ton interprétation.
    Côté technique évidemment une immense technique et que tu rends vivante.
    Tout comme toi, je n'aime pas particulièrement travailler la dentition. Tu l'as réalisée avec éloquence. J'aime la petite brillance des gencives.
    Je ne vais pas détailler les cheveux, la peau, son regard, et son expression etc... ADMIRABLE !

    Je te fais de gros bisous

  17. This is glorious in every aspect, Hilda! You should indeed be proud of how beautifully you handled that stunning smile -- not only the teeth, but also the lips -- have been expertly rendered!! All the lovely soft tonal transitions of the fleshtones are perfection as well, and the over-riding triumph is that captivating candid pose. Bravo, Hilda!!
