Jessie

A portrait of my youngest (by 10 minutes) daughter Jessica done in ACEO size.  I was inspired by some neat shadows on her face as she sat in front of a large window last weekend.  Because of it's very small size, I tried painting entirely with a #2 round brush which I had only very recently used on another piece.  I've only used flats in the past, and this seemed to work fine.
