Creative Portraits: Alice

Thought you might like to play with this picture I took on Sunday of my youngest grandaughter Alice, just over 2 years old and quite cute (well I think so).

Here's my first version of this - just head and shoulders.

Done in Painter IX with mostly Acrylic captured bristle and grainy water blender.

I posted an image earlier on which i withdrew, since i wasnt happy with it. I'm satisfied with this one! I used Painter 8, with many different blends to achieve the luminosity and the color.
