"Jessah" 11 x 13 Oil on board
Its a good thing my daughter doesn't read my blog because this painting doesn't totally resemble her. Sometimes when I finish a large painting, I want to try something looser with the left over paint on my palette. I used some ultramarin blue, terra rosa, yellow ochre, and white. I put a photo on my computer monitor and I tried to keep it quick and loose while painting, starting with paint mixed with thinner and adding some thicker as I went along.
My daughter loves hats and I don't know where she finds all of the interesting ones that she wears. This photo was taken when she was tree planting in the mountains and had her hair in dreads.
