Beautifully rendered Diana and a picture of innocence.

What a little stunner Diana, child and painting. You’ve transformed a photo into a quite lovely painting.

Hello Skylar and thank you. I enjoyed painting her. Morning Jim. You are very generous with your comments.Thank you very much. I love the idea of non photographic. Hello Jennifer and Carole. T you for leaving your comment. I value your opinions Thank you Margaret and Carl. My tutor is a very skilled watercolour artist and I learn so much just watching him paint She is a beautiful little girl Tao. A relative of the tutor,I believe. Morning John. It’s fascinating seeing all the variations during the critique. I wasn’t sure about adding the shapes in the background but think it breaks up the grey and adds interest Morning Dennis and thank you . I think I was hesitant with colour strength but working on it. I’m ok with the darkest darks and lights but mid tones tend to be a bit weak. Good morning Tessa and thank you for your thoughts. A pleasure to read.

Wonderful piece Diana.
