The Red Hat

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!
