The Little Girl with the Curl

After a summer in the garden I am finally back to painting. I really enjoyed bringing this young child to life on the paper. Well, who could resist this oh so innocent face with a hint of mischief in her eyes?

  'The little girl with the Curl' seems to be dreaming up her next act of mischief. Any ideas what that might be?

I really wanted to use the sense of light to focus in on her face, little hand and that tiny little curl on her forehead so had a lot of fun adapting the lighting and background as I painted.

  1. Hmmm, I think I could paint that lady who keeps looking at me…
