I painted for 9 hours yesterday! I am trying to emulate Richard Schmid's style. He chooses one area of focus and really works on detail and the rest of the painting is VERY loose. This is my high school friend's grand-daughter on her second birthday. Terry has photographed so many lovely things and given me permission to paint them that I wanted to paint Riley, her grand-daughter. I am not finished by a long-shot, but I'm happy with the shadows on her dress and her little arm.
