Ever the frugal artist, I was at the end of my palette after finishing up a few oil paintings, and used what colours were left to do a quick study of my youngest daughter when she was 3 or 4 years old.
I'd put out a tub of blackberries to thaw on the kitchen counter and found young madam tucking into the frozen berries with a spoon. I found the photo while looking something entirely different. It was meant to be.
This is the progression with no initial drawing. Sometimes quick studies are the easiest and most accurate as I tend not to over think them.
