The eyes
This is the portrait of Renate, taken last Saturday in school yard during the springtime party.. it's very popular here for kids to get their face painted by artists.. here is a result, both color and B&W..

It's really worth to entitle it with 'The Eyes'. Look like having an ambition to see your eye through the lens.
In larger version of your photo I afraid the eyes may hypnotize you if you stare it a while. :)

Wish, the lipstick should have been well applied as I can't help myself looking to the lips' uneven applied reds.

Thank you Emre.. :)

This is the painting process.. I liked the little girl peeking.. :) It has been quite a requested service, so I didn't expect to have them painted perfectly.. :D and it was free as well..

Here are a few more shots from the event..

Renate is being painted here..

One more image in color and B&W of Dagnija.. they both are my daughters..two of 3.. :)

Thank you for having a look! :)

Very nice photos, as always. I also like the one of the little girl peeking around to watch the makeup being applied.

Nice to have you back.

Great pics. Did you use any post-sharpening tools, or was that all "in camera"?

Hi! Thank you for visiting!

To khillabolt: All images in this post are with PP..none is right out of camera. It's an idea, I think I'll upload the images just right out of camera, with no PP at all.. :) a few more images here:

She's got such big and expressive eyes indeed! It was a great idea to post the further pictures so that we could see comperative pictures of your daughters Renate and Dagnija (standing quite stern except her pose with a smart 'evasive' smile!!) side by side : ) Ah, Milan, the city of carnivals and parties...

Thanks for sharing. Face painting is done here as well but my recollection is that the designs are both more complex and delicate in Europe.
