Hijita de la Frutera study sketch

This little girl was playing shy. Her mother, the fruit vendor, had given her approval for me to snap a few photographs.
This will be the next in my series of Guatemalan paintings. Because of the angle of her face I wanted to sketch her out with conte on bristol board first.

    I really enjoy the portrait work you are doing lately, Marta. This child's expression makes me wonder what she is thinking.
