Kashmiri Baby

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. 


  1. Fantastic, Taryn! These recent portraits are superb.

  2. This is sensational Taryn! So so beautiful and extremely well painted.

    I have just about finished a study of a man with a red turbin. I'm working elsewhere tomorrow so will have to wait until Wednesday to finish and post.

  3. Beautifully painted! These portraits are very expressive and just wonderful.

  4. Taryn - you really are a magnificent painter and you manage to put pure soul in the portraits eyes.

  5. absolutely beautiful!
    gorgeous brush stroke!
