Saba - monday portrait session

12x12" oil
Saba - a beautiful name for a beautiful girl. It means Cool Morning Breeze in Arabic. She was the model last night at our monday night portrait session - wish I had a photo of her too so you could see the likeness...what fun those eyes were to paint! but as for the spot I love? it would have to be her nose - loving that lighter brushstroke inbetween her eyes -yum

Debbie,

Saba is a beautiful picture of a beautiful girl...
the beauty of Saba is just like 'Cool Morning Breeze'...
the beauty of your painting style also is having the same effect...

congrats...

Beautiful portrait! Saba is lovely. It must have been really fun to paint her. Your skin tones are really nice. How wonderful to have such a great model.

Gorgeous portrait, Debbie. I love how you really captured the wispiness of her hair on the edges and the painterly feeling throughout. It just LOOKS like you had a good time painting it.
