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!
