At last I have the urge back to paint. I have painted Pendo and yesterday that was sold to her husband and he was very happy to see the painting in the mount and frame. I have painted Misty and still have some reservations about that. The owners have as yet not seen it but they are aware it is finished. Or maybe they have visited my site and do not like. Yesterday I was looking at the blogs of friends. I visited the blog of a friend from my youth, wondering if she had started to blog again, sadly no. But on the last post was a picture of her granddaughter Megan. I decided to spend a bit of time with some black pastel paper and a white pastel. Megan is where it led me.
I am sure there is room for improvement. I told my friend about it and emailed her a copy. As she emailed me back I could sense the love and the pride in her words.
She told me that Megan was a real little charmer. I am not sure if my friend will let her see it or if she might stumble on this but if she does I hope she likes it.
I can see even now that I need to soften the neck and add some shadow to the left of the neck to soften it. It is all a bit square across the bottom and that needs tidied up also, although the mount would probably sort that.
