Girl In A Red Scarf

Girl In A Red Scarf                   8" x 8"               oil on linen'

My niece was the model for this painting, but I did not worry about capturing a likeness. Because she was under a leafy tree, there was soft dappled light and moving shadows bouncing around everywhere. Of course, it's that splash of red that caught my eye!
