Painting on a rainy Sunday

Today I decided to try and paint my eldest daughter, Alex.
A few years ago I discovered acrylic paints - oh so much easier than watercolours
They do dry quickly, so I soak kitchen towel in water, put greaseproof 
paper on top and put the blobs of paints on to that.
 I use a plate for mixing and gradually build up layers and textures.
 I don't try and match the colours of her face and hair, but 
choose a palette of colours I like.
 In this case, mustards, browns with purples and greens.
 I leave the most difficult parts to last - Alex's eyes and lips.
 I am not sure I have got is perfectly right - but I can see her in there somewhere!
