A Very Big World

Oil on Board
I love the stance of this little girl with her foot turned pigeon toed.  She was standing in the middle of a very big room and was just content to observe all that was going on around her. 

I used a Zorn palette in this painting.  It felt a little limiting but I was able to get some of the color I was looking for.  I think that this palette works very well for portraiture.  I am ready to return to a palette with a fuller range of colors.

Tout comme vous j'aime les attitudes qu'ont les enfants... Elles sont si naturelles.
j'ai passé de si longues et merveilleuses heures à observer mes enfants lorsqu'ils étaient petits...
Une belle palette de couleurs.
Gros bisous

I am so bad with color pallets etc, I go with instinct, but I love the colors in this and the loose way you captured the subject.

Thank you, Marine. Your thoughtful words mean a great deal to me.

Thank you, Roger. I must say that your palette of colors are an inspiration to me and I often marvel at the clarity and beauty of the colors that you choose.
