Niece's Portrait, Abbie Update
This is much closer to looking like Abbie but still isn't on the mark yet. As I begin painting the other girls, I will continue to work on Abbie. Her hair needs more depth and volume and the widith of her smile may be a bit too narrow while her face looks a bit more round than it actually is.
The next niece in line in the reference photo is Kayly and she is looking pretty ragged. Yesterday's application of paint makes her look scary, like she is suffering from too much sun. Don't you just love all that blue in the neck area. I'll be working the skin tones more today, bringing them in line to look more natural.
