I couldn't resist painting another one of my beautiful granddaughters; this time Amelia. Her mother sent me a photo of Amelia in costume in the dance studio. I'm showing the digital printout, my drawing on canvas, and my first session where I brushed in the background.
There may be some color adjustment as I go along, but the background is essentially out of the way, and now I can concentrate on the figure. I'm really excited about capturing Amelia's beauty. She has big blue eyes, fair skin, and blonde hair, albeit hidden in a severe ballet sweep.
