A little girl’s portrait

I have grandsons, and so we don’t get much girl-energy around here! These four sweet girls I have just painted have been a delight to paint, and even though I have not met them, I get a sense of their energy, honesty, mischievousness, and sweet & fun natures. This was painted from a photo taken indoors, and so the color was particularly challenging. We think of young children as being fresh, warm, and the colors were cool, yet the face still had a warm sense to it. Anyway—a little hard to capture!
