Heidi Picking Red Fruits

We took this picture last December in Taiwan when we were up at the Big Snow Mountain (we didn't see any snow tho). Heidi was just running and playing around, and she was picking off all these little red fruits. I had no idea if they were poisonous, good thing she didn't eat them.

The painting was done quickly, so the strokes especially for the background were very loose. I liked how light bounced off her hair and jacket, and her face was in the shadow. I had to repaint her face twice since I didn't get the shadow color quite right the first time. Oil on 9.5"x12.5" paper.
