Haley is a very young model, but she is a natural. Every pose she takes is worth painting. Here I was attracted to the rhythmic shapes of the arms, offset by her innocent face with its dreamy gaze. Her charming bracelet was the right touch to break up what otherwise might have been a too insistent forearm. The vivid magenta of her shirt was a challenge to capture, but I think I came close.
