So, here is the finished painting. I am going to title her 'Windswept'.
I love the way the wind is blowing her hair, and the sun is 'caught up' in her curls. This is my youngest daughter... she has always been easy to photograph. She is a little older now, but the reference photo I used for this painting has been one of my favorites and long been on my 'must-do' list.
What's next you ask (okay, maybe you're not actually asking, I'll ask for you) ... well, I want to express beauty. I aspire to capture the beauty of women, and am in the beginning stages of an exciting project. I will document it as I walk this 'Beautiful Journey' and share my findings with you.
If you're an artist and interted in pastels, feel free to leave me your feedback, or questions. I am always learning, and will gladly share what I have learned.
