Another wonderful capture. I like the way you've even captured her knapsack. So what do you do -- take a photo and then use the photo for your painting?

Hi Paz.
Yes, I took a lot of photos of people at the race track when the shadows were long, so all the paintings from this series have been from those photos. I prefer to work from life, but I have thoroughly enjoyed this challenge.
