Here is a link to Elle's YouTube channel
Recently I discovered that she had badly injured her back and I was sad to hear the news. I can only imagine how horrible it must be to be confined to your home for so long to heal from something like that. I hope that she makes a full recovery from this and that she is finding some happiness in her current situation. I thought I'd create this portrait for her and record my painting process as well for those interested because not only does she have a beautiful face to paint but I thought perhaps if she saw this that it would cheer her up and perhaps she'd like it.
I always enjoy when she features Pinecone in her videos! He was fun to paint because he's so adorable and I haven't painted many animals before, but I do plan to in the future.
I looked at a few images and video stills of her for reference to study her bone structure, but this image was not copied from any other content.
Anyway, hope you all enjoy it and thanks for your visit!
