The pony tail session

This is a painting of Elizabeth combing Madeline's hair. The painting was started last year and I almost destroyed it, it was driving me insane. The problem was that I didn't know how to interpret the whole scene and Madeline's figure was too big, I mean the canvas chosen was too big and Madeline initial photo was taken when she was two years old. I redid Madeline's face maybe 20 times at least, made her look older, and changed the colors of the dresses too, with flowers, no flowers, flowers again..and they say I know what I want!
