I found this picture on a blog a few months ago — I’m not sure which blog, so sorry about not citing it.
I’m really drawn to the neutral colors used in the face and background, and then the splash of color in the pile of necklaces around the child’s neck. I think it’s a beautiful portrait of a child, and I love how large it is — I love large paintings of faces. I’ve been working on adding more color to my faces, but I think is a beautiful alternative. It doesn’t look like a grisaille painting without the color, just nice and light and innocent. I think I might do some sort of portrait like this in our next home.
