The photograph I was working from actually has her horizontal, but due to her hair as it is, I think it works better in a portrait format. Freckles are so hard to paint correctly and she has a lot. This is 16 x 20 Acrylic on canvas. Click on it for the best view. I also realized I signed it as if it was horizontal. OH Vel!

Thanks to a little inspiration from Mandy, made a few changes to the cat. Finished up her hand and turned that big old tennis shoe into a plain white sock, I am close to finishing. A few touch ups around the eyes and hair, she should be finished awaiting a name. And need to add the whiskers.....

my first idea was a Chickadee, but then realized you would have difficulty seeing the head, etc since they are pretty much have a black head. That is a problem with a black background. So we have a bird, big deal, maybe we need a cat somewhere here too....

Having so much trouble with the shirt, which it appears it is now turning into a sweat suit top. In the end the folds will work their way out. The big question is what is she doing, and what and/or who else will be in the painting. I have ideas. The one I plan on going with, you will go "huh?" And yes her eyes are large and very white presently. I will adjust the color to a little more natural, and with her hair to hang down into them at some point, the largeness will be needed. I have to say her blue jean shorts/skirt is looking pretty ok at this point.
