I have finally reached a point where I can say that I am content with this little guy's facial colouring. It may not be as bold as it could have been however, it is painted as boldly as I could muster. This is the first portrait that I have attempted on my own, and I have learned a lot.
The clothing is blocked in with the first coat. The background is done! The boat has had its first coat.
I have challenged my.self to paint every one of our grandchildren. I sincerely hope that I live long enough to do so...haha!
So...this is where I am right now. I wish I could speed up this process a little, but I can only paint on my days off. Six more portraits to go!!!
