Caroline and Friends

6 x 12 oil on linen panel

This is my granddaughter at her 6th birthday party (a swimming party) with her good friends enjoying pink cupcakes.   They were having the best time chatting and eating.  I wasn't going for a realistic rendering, just a gestural study actually.  Those are my favorite to paint.  I had to stop myself though to keep from overworking and making everything exact.  Now that I've posted this and reviewed, it's amazing how much better you can see features in the photo when you click on it to blow it up.  I worked from a 4" x 6".    I'll have to remember that in the future:   enlarge photo and then paint!
