The Flower Girl
As we come into August I wanted to paint the glorious late burst of summer in its triumph before it slides into luscious autumn. Besides, I can never resist painting red hair and the fine pale complexion which goes with it - added to the fact that this model has freckles which made her the perfect sitter to compliment the flowers.
Late summer is all colour, warmth, richness - and this is a Late Summer Girl.
