Cecilia in Progress









I'm working on this portrait of my granddaughter Cecilia to give to her father, my son Eben, for his birthday. Hmmmm...eyes are too far apart, mouth is funky, face is not the right shape - she looks a bit like Bjork at this point. (I prefer the preliminary sketches!) Tomorrow I will work into it with some prismacolor pencils. I think that I can loosen it up and reign it in...

Martha!

You did a great job capturing light in this one.

I love the glow behind her head and all the colors you snuck into this portrait!
