Georgina With Dylan

This is my niece Georgina, daughter of Valerie and Trevor and sister to Jessica. In her Facebook profile she is in the arms of her boyfriend Dylan, outdoors in a woodland scene. I think it must be Lucy's Gully, judging by the Redwood trees.  The image appeals to me as it kind of has a fairytale "babes in the wood" feel to it! This is one of those images where I regret choosing such a small size to work on. At only 100mm, or about 4 inch square, it is just too tiny to effectively capture likeness in the faces, with the impasto oil paint I use. However, I have been considering developing some of these little sketches further in larger paintings. We will see.
