More progress on father and son portrait


I've done a bit more work refining the baby, and started on the father's arm and shirt. Since the painting is somewhat small (20x16), I'm trying to work enough detail into the piece to make it look realistic from a normal viewing distance, yet I'm leaving enough "painterly" quality that you can see the paint strokes when you view it closeup. Painting the watch really slowed me down, though!

Congratulations Holly, on your new son, I am sure he will turn out to be as great a model as Brian has and congratulations on this new work. As Sheona said, it is looking gorgeous already. I am amazed you are finding time to be in the studio! You go girl!!! :-)
