Amy's Daughter

Amy's Daughter
5 X 7
Oil on Hardboard
Here is the finished painting for Amy's Daughter.  Having the drawing down (see previous post) was definately a life saver for this painting.  I know some can draw with paint and some don't draw at all, but I need that to give me a firm foundation for paintings like this.  But I don't draw with a pencil for all of my paintings.  Most still life paintings don't require this level of exactness to execute.

I chose this picture because of a lot of things.  I like the arch in her body, the motion of the rope ladder.  The fact that all the lines lead you to her cute little face.  And of course her personality.  I think Amy has a little "tom boy" in the making.  Which I like, because I was a tom boy!
