Larissa

This is Larissa,Nicholas Simmons' beatiful daughter.Nick is an online friend and artist from Wetcanvas .He kindly gave permission to post my painting online.
I had immediately thought to do a painting of her when Nick posted some pictures of his family last year.I finally got around to do it today.It is on 1/4 sheet size Hahnemuehle Torchon 275 gms paper.I'm kind of beginning to like this paper for portrait work(see my "Ceren") .It gives a looser effect if you work wet on wet.As usual with my portrait work of small children she looks older than she is but she is hopefully at the age now she looks!
