My 11 year old daughter Kiki sat so patiently for me today. Can’t wait for next weekend, I have 2 more kids that I can paint! This was a lot of fun. After my last few disappointments, I found myself smiling the whole time painting this. Doing portraits is one of my favorite things, for sure.

Painting portraits against bright light, when you can’t really judge the features of your model, was a tradition started in the Cape Cod school. The reason being that you are not caught trying to paint the likeliness of the model but the color relationships. These were called “Mudheads” for apparent reason.
