acrylic on hardboard
I have been working on this painting for sometime now. I am glad I can finally post it tonight. How adorable if I may say so myself. I can never resist a cute kid with a great smile. Kenya has what my husband calls a whole face smile. I love the way I was able to capture the bronze glow of her face. I always say sunlight makes the best lighting. This painting is a perfect example of great lighting. I was really happy to get the high contrast in so many areas of the portrait.
