oil on board
I wanted to keep this painting loose and have a more spontaneous approach than I'd had with the last one. I had to restrain myself from adding the kinds of delicate details that I love, but that can kill the spirit in a painting. I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out, because I think I kept the plaintive expression of this baby- a baby beyond cuteness, from far away in Kashmir.
Thanks to Steve Evans again- this is the seventh in a series of portraits based on his world portrait photography.
