Little bird watcher

I have been painting a lot this weekend, trying to get a portrait done for a friend. It's not quite done, but I needed a break, so I did this little one. The reference photo was taken from the Police concert in Salt Lake City last year. This little girl was pretty cute with her binoculars, not really watching the concert, but watching her sister mostly. I used that really textured handmade paper like I used for the work boots a while back. It is fun to work with, but I think it's not quite right for this scene. Perhaps I will try it on canvas some other time.
