Me & MGee | Part I

I’m about to take a page from my mentor’s playbook and publish my progress on a small portrait of my littlest granddaughter, Mila Grey Satin, sometimes referred to as MGee. Though I’ve painted her for her parents, it’s my turn to have an image of her for our condo in Florida, where her sister and cousins are already well represented. This is the grisaille, a drawing in paint of this precious child, that I always do monochromatically, hoping to catch the essence of my subject before my brain starts to name the parts of her face and I wind up with a generic baby, instead of her. This is Mila.
