Portrait Of A Little Girl: Valley Gardens, Harrogate

Session 6: Painting the dress, socks and shoes. There were several reasons why I was inspired to create this painting, one of them being this full length dress. The layers of color and detail were not only challenging but fun. In a  way it was kind of like frosting a cake. After doing a thin undercoat, I went back in to the fresh paint with two and sometimes three sizes of palette knives, applying and spreading the thick paint in festive colors. The flowers were especially enjoyable!
