It's impossible for me to resist an explicit challenge, especially when the subject is a blooming, rutilant girl which is, moreover, the grand-daughter of a mate in here.
I hope You like this interpretation on the picture. The perspective made me impossible to guess enough of her features to possibly change the pose and keep some likeness. I also refrained from a too original or extreme style experiment.
This was made on one of my pre-assembled background sheets without tracing or color picking and all on the same layer. I was astnished to realize it didn't take much once I pinned the silhouette.
The tools were pencil and crayon (and eraser, but just for some corrections).
The background help setting the chromatic harmony and some vague texture.

You do so well Cesare, great job!

I would thank you all, dear mates for Your most warm compliments which were almost embarassing, considering I used a reference and added little personal interpretation to keep a decent likeness. It's such an interesting picture that I hope that further mates will give it a try and the list of these portraits will continue with many different styles.

Dear Pat, it was a great pleasure and opportunity and I proceeded quite fast, so several details may actually still be improved. Thank You!

Caesar, a wonderful portrait and you have given her such a wonderfully haughty look :)

Thank You, dear Jean! That was the impression that I understood was the intention with that pose, although the Young age of the subject left a gentle glaze on the real picture.

Thank You, dear Amanda! Although she looks very young I think she shows her self-confidence and personality, so this portrait was an interesting challenge.
