Becca's Balloons




"Becca's Balloons"
7"x5"
Oil on Board
 
One of my precious nieces - the youngest one - has a birthday today!
She's my little model and budding artist! 
 
I painted this about a year ago while I was practicing figures in sunlight.  I especially enjoyed painting the balloons.  It was really interesting the way the light hits them and I know I want to paint more.  Maybe I'll get my chance this evening with the birthday girl!
 
Happy Birthday, sweet Becca!

What a complete charmer :) I love the way she stands and the wonderful red balloon off setting the figure.
