Portrait: Ellie Contemplating

Although she's often a happy child I see her very often just watching the things happening around her. In nursery, foundation and year one, the teachers have all commented on her tendency to hang back and thoughtfully observe before carrying out her tasks.
This portrait of Ellie is produced in oil paint. It's taken around 32 hours of work and I based it one main reference photo and used two extra photos to help with the face.
