The Red Hat
The Red Hat was my second commissioned child painting from MadAboutHue, and my second painting of children playing at the beach out of three in a row. Those first three commissioned paintings taught me how much I really love this subject matter. The angle of his nose and mouth was very challenging; I actually had to call it and start over completely. But I made all of my mistakes in the first painting, and the second was smooth sailing. I adore his rosy cheeks and lips under the brim of his red hat!
