Drama Queen

I loved her expression here and really needed to paint her. It's always fun looking into the family albums for that  perfect reference photo.  I remember taking this like it was yesterday.

  1. Oh my Hilda - this is absolutely wonderful...love the title and you caught her expression beautifully. The pout as well as the eyes had me smiling as soon as I saw this on my sidebar. Take care and have a wonderful week. P.S. Your portraits as well as all your art is gorgeous. Hugs!

  14. Such a cute pose and a marvelous one for painting. Glad you could get a snap! I always look for poses that are a little "different." So sorry that she is tired or upset, but it makes an enchanting photo. Be sure to show it to her when she is 15 or so.
