Acrylic on Acrylic Board (circa A3) (Unframed)
I have now painted all three grandchildren.So now I have moved on to other family members.
This is my Great Niece, Charlotte, known in the family as ‘Lottie’. I prefer Charlotte.
This is the first of my two Great Nieces, so as it stands, I still have one more to paint.
I really struggled with this composition, and almost threw it away. The photo that I used, I lifted from a Social Media site, and when I printed it off all the tones reversed, so it was akin to a colour negative. Reds were pinks and oranges, balcks were white and vice versa. I managed to print off a smaller version where the colours were accurate, or at least more so, and I used that as reference, but it was very problematic when it came to painting the detail.
Anyway, here it is. Not for sale (other than as a print), but a gift to my niece
