The last time I posted about the painting of the McNamara girls, the painting looked like this:
Here’s an addendum to rearranging faces:
In the picture on the right, Libby’s face looks more grown up. She looked too old, so I lowered her eyes and lightened her skin so that the shadows weren’t as severe. Children’s noses start out short, but as they grow up their noses grow longer. By lowering her eyes, I made her nose appear shorter and more child-like. And by lightening the shadows on her face, I made her face look a little fuller and younger.
