"A Little Girl in Red"


When I started painting about ten years ago. Figures and portraits used to be my favorite subject. However, due to the practicality of my working and living style, still life has been a suitable replacement. Now, having painting still life for many years, painting humans starts once more ticking my mind. Last night, I was browsing the photos I took when I was camping about two weeks ago. An image of a little girl fishing by the lake triggered my human painting mode. Well, after I started this one, I realized how remotely I am in managing the human form and color. There are a lot of issues in this painting waiting for me to tackle in the future, but at least it get me started on this relative new territory. I am not going to put this painting on eBay, but if you like to have it, please email me an offer, and I will send it to the highest bidder in seven days.

Please do more portraits, she is charming, I am just learning how to do portraiture by drawing first, but the "look" I want to achieve is what you have just done.

Great portrait. I also love painting people (in watercolor) but have not done so for a long time. This motives me to do it again.
