"Zora as a Fairy"



6x6
Acrylic on Masonite

I have had this image sitting around for about a year. My original intentions were not necessarily to paint the photograph, but it was taken simply as a snapshot of Zora in her Halloween costume. She's so cute and girly, everything about the painting screams Zora, I even used her favorite colors, you guessed it pink and purple, go figure. The entire painting reminds me of cotton candy. I'm pretty happy with the finished result. The marriage between loose brush strokes and the blended modeling of the facial tones have a nice balance.

what a beautiful and interesting portrait. The colours are lovely and she really looks like she just might fly away!
