Her First Prayer-study, oil on linen panel, 8"x6"

This is a little color oil study of my daughter, the 2nd step in executing my process of completing a larger painting (I posted a monochromatic version of this a couple weeks ago). Some asked if I got my daughter to sit still or if I used a photo. Though my daughters are both little angels they cannot sit still long enough to be painted, so yes I did use a photo. But with almost any photo I had to change things and make sure that I simplified my values, and I had to go much warmer with the colors than the photograph showed. This little painting was a great learning experience for me.
