#43 - Smitty's GC #3

8" x 10"
Oil on Masonite

Isn't she a cutie? The biggest challenge on this one honestly was the flyaway hair. In the photo, it just glowed from the sunlight. The photographer truly has a gift and I was not able to duplicate it exactly, so after a few attempts, I didn't try. I stepped away, came back to my style and think I came up with a successful solution.

I'm not a photorealist and I really don't want to be. I certainly admire photorealistic artists (Here's one of my favorites.), I've just never had the urge to paint like that. Love to look at it though!
