A study of my daughter Phoebe from a life sitting. Phoebe was looking at her ipad- as is generally the case. This created harsh lighting on her face. Her hair is wonderfully wild and tousled- almost pre-raphaelite.
I have deliberately kept the background unfinished, it is a 'caught in the moment' image and I didn't want it to look overworked.
