Painting a Portrait of My Granddaughter–a work in progress

DSCF2668
I couldn’t, or wouldn’t, indeed, I didn’t want to paint a portrait without a story…in this case I had a canvas that I started some time ago which included a nighttime planetary glow….and then I had this photo I intended to work from of my granddaughter petting a kangaroo. The kangaroo would have been under her outstretched hand. Creating the lighting under a darkened sky is a challenge–well, I’m working on it.
