"Portrait of a Girl"

Today I'm showing you a portrait of a girl. I wanted it to look a bit like a portrait from the past with a touch of mistery, but at the same time it was supposed to be fresh and with a pleasant feel. 
The most enjoyable was painting the hair and the sunshine on her face.


"Portrait of a Girl", 17x23 cm, oil on board


Have a wonderful weekend and see you all on Monday!
