Child portrait


Ok, I have revisited a portrait of an eight year old that I started and never finished from several years back. I think my skills have improved enough to tackle it again. So here is the preliminary sketch. Now I need to get to the store before I can apply oils, and we are having an ice/snow storm all over the state, so this puppy will have to wait for a week or so before I can start the paint process. So, all you folks who know this beautiful girl: does this look like her?
By the way, I heard from the art competition, and I made it through to the first round of cuts! Now I have to frame and ship Modern Day Mother in Zion to the church's museum of Art and History by January 24th for the next round of judging and eliminations. Wish me luck!

Anita, the picture is spectacular and it reminds me of how angelic she was back then!

I love the portrait.
Morgan looks very graceful and sweet like always.... not....
I can't wait to see it with colors.
You made me want to start painting again. I'd like to show you my work before you leave. I will try.
