Really rainy outside. I decided to work on a quick study of my daughter. She has patiently sat for me for several portraits this summer. I think there is a lot to say for practice and certainly important to actually paint from life. This was an opportunity for me to work from what I have practiced and know in my memory. I am pleased at the final painting. I could have gone much further on it but it is really just a study and something that I wanted to keep so I will quit at this stage of the work. Studio work is greatly improved with life study and plein aire.
Happy painting. I would love your comments !
