Wallflower - original oil figure painting

One day she'll be a swan, but getting through the awkward stage is the challenge for now. I find young people at this sort of gawky time of life to be so charming and just wonderful to draw. This painting is 6 x 6" on Ampersand Gessobord and was painted from drawings that I did from life.SOLD

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

I agree with you Connie, girls at this age are wonderful to know. (I have 3 granddaughters - 11, 14 and 15. And this is a lovely, quiet study. I think the limited palette works so well.

Thank you Sheila.

This is the most interesting painting I've seen in a long time. Unfortunately it is sold because I want it. There is an expression to her face conveyed with minimal detail. The posture, color mix, etc. all work.

My husband and I independently identified this painting as one we really liked.

Thank you for your nice comment. I loved doing this one - the emotion, I guess, and I'm so glad you like it.
