Luca

Art class. A quick painting of Luca, the daughter of Annemiek, our teacher. This is one of the 2 paintings I made in these two painting hours that we have on Saturday morning.
Acrylic, 50x60cm. The difficult part was to know when to stop.

Mooi man. Jammer dat die benen niet af zijn.

Very nice!
I think it looks more "finished" if you crop it at the knee. At least it does so to my eyes.

Bijzonder mooi Rene!

Thanks Geert-Jan, Rob, Balaji and Rodney; you pose an interesting point. I had thought about painting the legs, but decided against it, because the composition would have been unbalanced. It would become more diagonal, and I wanted the attention area to be more or less square.
Furthermore the legs would have taken the attention away from the face.
But I agree that the legs are too undefined now. Maybe some charcoal lines would have done the trick.
