what is she thinking?
This is not a daily painting...it took more like 3 weeks and I am not sure if I am finished. It is pastel on Wallis paper.
I look the reference photo of this little East Indian girl in Chicago this year. She was very serious and direct in her stare. I have another view I may try also.
I often do more than one pose or more that one painting of the same pose for a portrait. I don't try to get it the first time, and that helps the pressure of getting a likeness.
