"Love yourself the way you are and always wear a happy face no matter the odds."
This painting was really fun to paint, the colors were really exciting and I felt very inspired by Kayli's look and fun spirit. I loved the strong colors in the shadows of her pink shirt, and the colors in her skin tones. I used two light sources in this painting, and put a cool blue filter over the main light, which created an interesting effect. The second light was directed into the shadows and made them lighter, and there were lots of beautiful reflected lights. I would love to paint a series of her like this, in different poses. Her dark eyeliner accentuated her cool look.
