I really enjoy painting baby faces.  Eyes are so interesting to paint, and until I have the eyes to my liking the portrait does not come alive to me. The fact that babies and toddlers have such large eyes in proportion to their face (compared to adults) really works for these little portraits.  Similar to the anime face, the eyes in the toddler face take centre stage. And speaking of animation.. this little cutie was captured sitting still in her high chair, (left out of the portrait). In life, I think she would always be on the go, don’t you?
