I broke one of my own rules: I painted a painting where I do not hold photography credits. My daughter is in the middle, and the photographer's daughter is in the front. These three gymnasts were standing during the national anthem during their state meet. I needed a hair study and this was perfect. I learned to respect the blacks. When you need a true black, you mix more with a clean brush.
I love painting ears and skin. Once I start painting skin, the time flies.
Next on the easel is a sea scape!
