100 PORTRAITS IN 100 DAYS - Chloe, 6/100, © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Day 6
This little girl was irresistible with her smile (minus the front two teeth) and the fabulous back lit pale blond hair. This is another good example of how important good lighting is for making an interesting photo/painting.
I'm sure Chloe had a recent visit from the Tooth Fairy. When my kids were little, the going rate from the Tooth Fairy was 25 cents/tooth or something like that. I suppose that's up to over $1/tooth by now.

Chloe looks magnificent. I love the way her hair just looks so luminous!

Chloe is wonderful; just love that super contrast from her blonde hair and beautiful dark eyes. This definitely looks like you had fun painting every bit of this portrait, especially the explosion of hair. Well done!

Boy you're going gangbusters here Carol! I know you're taking this like a marathon and not a sprint because of the quality and care you're giving with each portrait.

You did a wonderful job painting my Granddaughter!
She had lost one tooth just a day or so before this was taken. She is such a happy inquisitive little girl and all girl! She will think she is famous when she sees this!

Another winner, Carol!

What a wonderful piece. Great job on rendering the light and her bubbling personality.

I love her hair, Carol!

It's almost ghostly in appearance......in a very cool way, of course!
