Child of Madagascar

 Here is the cropped version of the painting which was done on an 1/8th sheet of Fabriano Aristico Soft Press watercolor paper.  Below is the full face version.  Many thanks again, to babasteve on Flickr, for the use of his photo.

Stunning!

This is really beautifully done, Ann; I think the cropped version pulls you into her eyes better but I like both versions.

Bravo, Ann - beautifully done! [I like the full version]

The eyes really do draw you in. They really give an intimate connection between viewer and painting.

Hi,
maybe this site is interesting for your blog? www.artapa.com

Artapa is a free online art price database that anyone can contribute to. Their goal is to create one easy space online where art lovers and galleries can keep track of artworks, artists and prices. A sort "little black book", that isn't black or a book. Or little, to think of it. They are now several months online, and they're growing all the time.

Thanks all of you. I enjoyed painting this very much. In looking at the photo and thanks to other artists critique of the painting I can see areas that could be adjusted. This painting makes the child look older and I could shorten the face from the bottom of the nose to the chin which would help to make her look younger. Instead, I'll just call this one finished and start a new one! Happy Painting all of you.
