The model’s eyes are so expressive. I remember when she was a just a baby. Now she has grown into such a lovely young lady. This painting evolved from several ideas. I have been wanting to work with extreme lighting again and I found my chance with this one. I have to admit, “I hate painting white tee shirts!” This was a grand challenge for me. I am glad I can scratch that off of my rather long list of “Things I Hate Painting but Should Probably Try.” I actually do have this list and I can honestly say I have scratched three things off since I began daily painting.
