This is a portrait of my beautiful granddaughter, Arrabella. She was in the studio, so I requested she sit on the chair next to my easel and asked her to keep as still as possible! the process of making the painting was around half an hour. It was at the limits of her patience! Can you spot the difference between the two images? I took out the heavy line under the chin and the dark line on her hair parting, and a couple of other minor adjustments. The following day, a friend saw it and has requested I paint her grandchildren and daughter-in-law. I'll let you know what happens (pressure!!).
