This week I worked on a painting for my friend. It is her granddaughter and i feel in love with the personality that shines through on this little beauty. I love her skin tones and her white blond hair. I still find that I cannot capture a photo that is exactly like the painting. The paintings always look better "in person". I have read articles, watched videos and done all of the things suggested - but to no avail. If anyone has a secret please share!
