Little Girl Portrait II: Gracie and the Balloon/3rd Session

oil on canvas, 11x14
3rd Session
I'm really having fun now! Though I'm still not certain what I'm going to do with the background yet, I like the way the light blue and her face have such an ethereal feel to them. It feels like I'm painting a little angel.


  1. Oh my gosh! Don't change the background at all! She looks like a China doll. so cute!

  2. Thanks Megan! I think if I do anything it might be some light,whispy white clouds but I'm not sure if even that is necessary.

  3. Yeah! The blue is so striking!!! This is amazing! you've totally captured her!

  4. Hi Rita,
    I saw from a recent email that you have a blog. This portrait is beautiful! Can't wait to see it upon completion.

  5. Thank you for the encouraging words Lorraine!I'm excited to see it completed too!
