Gwen has such a bubbly personality and I just smile when I see or think about her.
This painting presents a composition problem. It's undoubtedly a stronger portrait as a 3/4 study, however the boots are also such a part of her gestalt that I decided to include them in the painting.
It's part of the combination that makes 'Gwen' such a distinctive little girl.
So the smaller image is a cropped view of the actual painting, you can decide if I sacrificed too much clarity in the composition to include a full length work.
