Day 18 of the Thirty in Thirty Challenge by Leslie Saeta (link). My theme has been color.
I love the "glow" in this painting. I think it happens because the warm greens travel through the painting. They are complimented by the red and the warm tones (reds and oranges) in the hair and floor.
Watching a child draw gives me a feeling of peace and warmth, which may be another reason I like this little painting. Children don't fear the blank page. They love making marks, adding color, exploring. Adult artists need to remember to do the same: to be "in the moment". "This is for you".
