A different kind of reflection this time! I've become intrigued with faces in miniature lately. I'm going to post a couple of these over the next few days. Totally experimental, loads of fun, probably a long, long way to go...
They aren't going to be for sale because I'll be referring back to the first few. This one was painted from a photo from the Reference Image Library at WetCanvas. I'm not sure it looks that much like the girl, but that isn't my greatest concern. I want to use good contrast, capture a mood, and paint loosely, with painterly strokes and fresh colors. This one pleased me.
And yes, it's the same size, 3.5" x 2.5", and is painted on Pastelmat.
