I think the figure in this painting looks stiff.  Also, I am not entirely sure if her right arm is correct--it looks a little low on the body.  I love the way her coat is painted, however.  Nothing says happy like a yellow coat.

  1. How often I've studied this painting never seeing the problem with the right arm. You are correct.
