Should have been a cowgirl Painting a day

I have been wanting to try portraits. I had this picture of my niece wearing a friends cowboy hat. It was so cute, so that is my painting for the day. After drawing it out with charcoal, I started with the background. Then I worked on the hat, face and body. I wanted to do the outlines and tried those in oil crayon but I just didn't have enough control. So I ended up just using paint. I think it turned out okay for my first try. I will definitely work on some more.
