At 2 p.m. today, I thought I was short one painting for 2016 so I cranked out this one of my nephew, Theo. I now see that I did 53 paintings… So consider this a bonus. The angles of the window frame shows the challenge of painting from a photo as the eye sees it vertically yet a camera doesn’t.
After painting this, my model friend was concerned that it was too revealing and requested some redaction 😉 I hope to practice putting on semi-transparent drapery later.
Showing my niece on the steps to do a painting in a couple hours.
Tried one with a much stiffer brush for comparison.
