Addie Oakley

My favorite 6-year-old tom girl! This painting came from the photo Addi’s mom, Erin, took of her. Erin is a talented photographer and has some exciting pictures. Check them out at themodphotog.com. I work with Addi’s dad, Ryan. Learning how to paint portraits in oil is new for me. I used a “painterly” style with dabs of paint to indicate the shadows on the face the color of the boots, etc. Keeping it light and not overworking was the challenge in this painting and I learned a lot on technique. It took as long to do the background as it did this cowgirl! This is definitely one of my very favorite paintings and I hope her parents like it! Thanks Ryan for all you do for us!
