A person smelling flowers always comes up as a theme for me. This is a painting I did years ago as part of the land of Nod story. Not just smelling one flower but shoving your whole face into the earth.
This painting was for a children's book "bellwethers message"
The final painting! She looks more like she is going to eat the flowers, oh well... With this kind of board you need to be careful of the light on the face, keeping the value between the strongest light and the darkest brown no more then the 80/20% rule ( meaning 80% of the board is covered with 20% variation.)
