Shirley Temple

6 x 6 

Oil on canvas 

This is a challenge we had on Daily Paintworks. 

Here's the instructions we had : 

Painting Movie Stars Portraits with Limited Palette 
In this challenge we will try to paint a portrait in blue and purple. Here is a picture of Greta Garbo that you can use as a reference for your portrait or you can use your own photo. Make a palette of Manganeese Blue adding Titanium White to it in different proportions for values; try to make at least 5 values. For a half-tone add a little bit of purple to it, and for the darkest darks use Ultramarine Blue and some purple to tie the whole portrait together.

I forgot to use purple... I don't think it's missing though.
