Start on an 18" x 18" oil

Ok, so sometimes I just can't resist a pretty face. This little doll was being a flower girl in a family member's wedding at La Villita in October. A woman from Minnesota of whom I did a monochromatic oil portrait sent me this photo she took while in San Antonio, giving me permission to use it as reference for a painting. I'm finally giving it a go. The features are still too sharp and there are whole sections of the painting either just roughed in or missing altogether, but I thought I'd post the beginning anyway.

You've made a great start here, it will be stellar I'm sure when you have finished it!
I have really enjoyed looking at your work, very impressed.
