I looked at children’s portrait painting from a different angle…from straight above. And all kids portraits are supposed to have one of those mungallydum backdrops…unless a tub full of colorful plastic balls might be cuter. And lets make kid sit on that stupid, uncomfortable chair until she cries…trying to make her smile. When an angelic glance is so much more what the child actually looks like.
