Here is my daughter Rebecca taking a look at my progress so far. I hope the photo gives you some sense of the scale of the painting. I really like working this size. It really helps you to become absorbed in the feeling/emotion of the painting as you paint.
It was a lot of fun yesterday creating the wispy hair blowing in the breeze and the golden brown colour that her hair goes in the summer sun. I still have the bottom section of hair to paint but the tricky sections are done.
I'm still trying to think of a title for this painting. So far the ones I like best are:
1. Sky High
2. 'On top of the world' or 'looking down on creation'
Any thoughts on these or other ideas are, as always, greatly appreciated :)
I probably won't get around to posting an update again until afer Christmas so I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.
