I have tried a direct approach for starting this painting on canvas. I used a minimal grid method to capture the proportion from the reference photo.
For me, the main challenge for this painting was to achieve the blond hair of the child.
My palette consists of Burnt Umber, Burnt sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Bule, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow, Scarlet Lake, Crimson Lake, and Titanium White for this painting.
I will love to hear any suggestions and comments from you.
