Portrait of a little girl, loosely based on a photo. Aside from her cute face and expression, I really liked her hair.
Natural blond hair has a lot of different colors, including light and dark browns, very light colors up to almost white and a number of yellow and ochre colors in various shades. First, I identified the basic color and then developed the palette based on the basic color.
Once I had the colors, it was a matter of layers, lines, waves and the application of light and shadow.
