Powder vs. freckles

She was realizing that the powder she used attempting to hide her freckles was more distracting than the freckles themselves.

I like it a lot....the shadow and highlights in white are very effective. Before I was gray, I was a redhead, and had a splatter of freckles ....they are gone now, and so is the red hair...HaHa

I love your portrait! I have always thought freckles are rather attractive! Back in the 'seventies for a brief time it was fashionable to paint freckles on, so how changeable is fashion!!! xx

You always do the BEST faces. They're simple but very expressive. I happen to like freckles! This girl is one of my favorites.

I love your freckled face girl. I don't know why some people get so upset about freckles. I still remember how upset I was as a young teen when the professional photographer removed my freckles from a photograph. My freckles were and still are part of me.

I love this (and your sense of humour!) :) She's beautiful with her freckles. And i love the pattern in the background. You always choose exactly the right colours in your work. Happy Sunday Michelle! xx
