I have wanted to paint my lovely fair-haired daughter for quite a while, having done quite a few portraits recently of my lovely dark-haired one. I found this scarlet vintage hat 'topper' online and that was the beginning of the idea.
It was a challenge doing this with a palette knife especially the hair and gauzy clothing.
I plan on more of this quiet time...with just myself and my palette knife, oh yes, and inspiration.
