I've been asked if I paint children , too. So I decided to do a practice painting of my niece, Isabelle and godchild, Stevie. It's nice to use 300 lb. paper because it can take alot of abuse.
Although I dared to publish this one, I need to do a better job on the skin and shadows. I once tried a portrait book but she used green for shadows and I just don't like the effect.
And yes, her blue eyes are that big and beautiful in real life. She's a cutie! (and nephew, too.)
