portrait of a child

Title: Waiting for the music
9x12 mixed media portrait
The image of the little dancer was part of a demonstration in portrait painting for my wednesday evening class. The background is a technique that I developed called "faux painting." I developed this method to break the students of the fear of facing a white canvas. The child is painted in acrylics using an impressionistic approach. This painting is available for purchase.
