"She's Happy"

Needs a little more work, but I think I'll keep trying the caricature concept.

Translating graphite (or pencil) to paint is a bit different and harder than straight pencil drawings.

Color is the challenge. Challenge is good.

I cut the top of her head (hair) off too, but I think with more time and practice. If you're game, I'm game.

Maybe I should use more black (there is no black in this painting) like Bernard Buffet.

Oh please keep it up! You have a real talent for it. i understand the paint challenge but I think your bold bright style suits it perfectly.
