"Picking Cornflowers" Portrait of a Young Girl

This child portrait is called "Picking Cornflowers" since the little girl painted here is holding cornflowers she has just picked from a field. Painted from a photograph the same backdrop was used and painterly recreated. Here are some more of the work in progress shots.

Here I have added the greenery in long strokes. I wanted to push the tall grass back and just hint at it, so that the focus stays on the foreground.

Here the colors are roughly put in before even more color is added.
