HAPPY NEW YEAR


Tikkar Billa, Oil on Canvas, 24" X 20" 
A very happy new year to all my friends and fellow bloggers. Thank you for all the encouragement you guys have provided me with in the past year. I look forward to it in the coming year too. 
I composed this painting using several sources, mostly photos and a couple of face and hand sketches. I have changed the colours of the dress hoping to create a more pleasing harmony.
Thank you so much for stopping by. All comments and critiques are most welcome.

Vinayak, this little lady is lovely. Wonderful job! Wishing you and your family a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2015.

I love the animation in this painting, Vinayak. If I may [you did ask for comment or critique], I would tone down the white highlights in her feet and lower leg, to bring all the focus up to her head.

Thank you so much Carol.
Thank you Kathryn. I agree those stark highlights look a little too odd. Actually the girl in the reference pic had wet legs and was running on wet floor. I should have taken care of this. Thanks again. Hope to rectify this in my next paintings :)

Late saying this but I wish a very
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Love the movement you achieved in this young girl.
