Sketch of Bella on Blue
Just having fun.... she has the most amazing hair. And an adorable little profile :)
And cute ears. Well, almost all ears are cute. And lots of fun to paint! It's not like I've ever tried to paint anyone with a bad case of cauliflower ear or anything, so I'm not speaking from an infinately large pool of experience, but.... ears are fun to paint. They hold still, and no one ever says "the portrait is beautiful, but the ear is just a little off...."
It was Sargent that said that a portrait is a painting in which there is something just a little bit off about the nose. Sargent! I mean, that man was a miracle with a brush, but even he had disgruntled sitters, I guess.
