A beautiful little girl

It's amazing! I've actually finished this one before the month was out and I only had weekends and evenings to work on it. I'm using a wonderful birthday present to assist - it's a natural daylight lamp and invaluable for evenings and cloudy days. [Thanks Aiden & Dan!].

In this portrait, I've tried to work more confidently both with colour and contrast. I'm very happy with the result but still see lots of room for improvement.

Today I'm starting on my first commission - another coloured portrait of a beautiful lady. Watch this space! :o)
