Claire & Maddie in the works...

Today I put aside my painting of the little girl holding her new baby sister. I need to think about it more, and I've joined a community of artists at for some possible feedback.

So I've started on my next portrait, once again of two sisters - but in this informal portrait the girls are older and in very bright spirits. My challenge here is to preserve the spontaneity of the moment, the sparkle in the eyes, and the hint of mischief in their smiles (or is it more than a hint?)

I've included the original reference photo here.
