little girl blue

These quick paintings are often the ones i end up liking the most.
The unplanned paintings.
This was done in about 10 minutes, after i finished another painting & had leftover paint on my palette. Obviously, leftover blue & turquoise only. :-)

Sometimes, the bolder, more expressive paint strokes capture a sentiment or a mood more clearly than if the paint strokes were controlled & perfect. "Perfect" wasn't the mood i was looking for here - "melancholic" was the mood I was looking for. (did i get it right?)


  1. I adore this! Such sentiment through the color and the details. The t-shirt creases, her hair tied back, the peak at her face...beautiful!
