“By The Window” Oil Portrait Painting Instruction

My sweet daughter Braeden again, in the shade of the old building near the canal outside of Washing DC.  The setting is back lit, late afternoon, soft light. I love the ancient window and sill, her scarf, and the cool light on her fair flesh tone. I also love the subtle gray tones and subdued color palette.

You can see the progress I’ve made. The bottom image was very early in the painting, and the top image has been refined after much work, and I still have more to do!
