La Jeune Boheme en Vert, a pastel painting

I finished this painting and forgot to post it!  There’s quite a bit of detail in this one because, aside from it being a portrait and wanting the face to be the focal point, the textures were also important to the context.  Here is “La Jeune Boheme en Vert”! (The model for this painting is my beautiful oldest grand daughter, Callie, age 8.)

    C’est bon! the details of the room, carpet and chair make this look very 1920s in its composition and feel. BRAVO!
