Well done William, a lovely painting of a happy little girl! The light is very good and I like the addition of the flowers. They add to the happy feel. A plain background here might have little plain! It really is lovely and she looks delightful ! In answer to your question, my daughter had a baby girl ! She's very cute! As to painting her, you might possibly remember that my portraits aren't terribly good! I'm trying to forget my last attempt :) Nice to see you back!

I agree with Louise. this is a beautiful portrait of a beautiful girl and I like the flowers around her.

A very beautiful portrait , William. Super light on the skin!

It's really good, you are very talented!! :)

Thanks guys and girls for your comments,I enjoyed painting her ,It actually got me out of a' painters block' , Louise you are right without the flowers it really looked to stark,

What a gorgeous painting. Love the light and detail, especially in the woollen jumper and your grandaughters hair. You've captured a lovely expression, super work!

It works for me William----- Supper and very well painted ---All the best William

Lesley,Chas and Kirstie thank you all for your encouraging comments, they are all very welcome, : )

Wow, William, I missed this beautiful portrait. What a marvellous addition to your super gallery! It is such a beautiful girl, perfectly painted! I am jealous!

I love the "lit -up" look you have captured Just right for a beautiful little girl. Like the flowers too.

Thanks for your kind words Mia and Judith, they are apreciated even more as all the comments come from artists I admire, thank you all.

I've just found Matilda, a beautiful little girl and lovely composition, what a clever Grandad.

William, --- acrylic painted as oils is only using the paint thickly, the paint is then showing the brush marks. hope this helps -- Chas

You have captured some lovely light on this painting William.....your granddaughter looks so pretty. Looking at your other work in this folder, you have such a great feeling for people and faces. The young girl in the waves is exceptional........jealous too, like Mia!

There is so much in this painting that I admire, William - the soft texture of the cardigan and the hair, the light and, of course, the wonderful skin tones. Well done!

Gorgeous light in this super portrait William and gorgeous capturing of her reaction tobthecstrong sunlight as well, starting to screw up her eyes, so realistic

Hang on Studio Wall

My other Grandaughter, acrylic on box canvas, she loves flowers so I suggested some around her , not sure that it works but I gave it to her Mum and she seems to like it.
