I Love the reflections and the colors you put in the skin and hair.
Are the children models or relatives?
Robin has captured the girls facial expressions beautifully. The intensity of the "Painter" and the happy "curiosity" of the audience and the glee of the "paintee" are priceless.
I love how you were able to bring out the colors of their dresses under that glass table. The hair of the little girl in red looks like it was just cut. The highlights are amazing. I love the facial expression of the girl painting the other girl's nails. She looks like she was very into it and she did not want to be disturbed. I can tell it was a beautiful sunny day.
