Girl In Pink

Oil on a 7x5 archival canvas panel.
The photo from which this painting was made comes from Angie at the WDE...Wet Canvas.

Once again I made myself try a different approach. I challenged myself to Paint much looser...Keep edges soft...Underplay detail...Keep the value range higher...Keep colors softer, to fit the subject of the little girl in pink.

I am very pleasantly surprised by the outcome! What do you think?

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

  6. Thank you, Frank. I have always admired the loose approach in painting. Not near as easy as it appears. But I enjoy the chase.

  7. Hi Dean, I love the loose brushwork in this little painting! Great effect, not easy to get.

  8. Thanks, Jennifer. This is one of my favorites. My recent attempts at the free style haven't lived up to my expectations. But I'll keep trying!
