Ginny's Hat - original oil portrait painting

GINNY'S HAT - ORIGINAL OIL PORTRAIT PAINTING

Made some changes to my previous sketch - "borrowed" a young friend to hold the pose for a few minutes and it became a somewhat different...

THE MODEL IN A GREEN FLOWERED DRESS - ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PORTRAIT PAINTING
