Timelapse Korsou Beach Girl

I painted this girl a few weeks ago. So cute in her striped bikini and beautiful hair! Here she looks very serious, but at the moment I am painting her again, but this time very happy, playing in the water. I never paint children exactly how I see them on the beach. I always use the photos I take as reference material, to express an emotion or paint a stance I really like. When I painted commissions the likeness was a priority, but now it is more the scene I am drawn to.  I painted this girl with oil on printed paper, a part of a postcard print. I added collage elements to create the effect of water.
