Connie and her tutu

Connie and her tutu

She's gorgeous! I love Degas too! this shines with your love for her. If i may be so bold...and I'm no expert at advice, I feel just a hint more on her left hand through the lovely tutu might just bring the hand into focus...just a thought, Dawn...hope you don't mind!

Thank you, Thalia. I did love painting my beautiful grand daughter. I will have a look at her that hand. It's always good to get feedback.

What a great painting Dawn, I love the Wellington boots!

Utterly gorgeous Dawn.

What a super work this is Dawn, well done.

Thank you Margaret, Sylvia and Alan.

My beautiful grand daughter, Connie. Pastel on pastelmat from a photo taken at Whisby Nature Park, Lincoln. I love Degas and wanted to do something in a similar style and thought this would be perfect. Got a bit carried away with detail though.

About the Artist
Dawn Halliwell

I started painting in Jan 2016 after the death of my youngest sister. I found it great therapy and still do! I love experimenting with different techniques and media. This year, I have set myself a challenge of working on my portrait skills, but I do love to paint animals and landscapes…
