"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.
