I have shown this painting on Critique my Art Work, but I thought it appropriate that I show it here. It is a painting of my grand-daughter that I started when she visited me for Christmas. I must admit that I struggle with backgrounds for portraits. I kept this one simple so that the hair that outlines the face could fall away into it to lend depth.
I would love to hear all suggestions on this and any other comments regarding this painting. Painting is oil on canvas board 16 x 20
