Thanks for hosting, Skatty! I always seem drawn to your photos of your family members, and I just love the one of your father and his brothers. I hadn't seen your challenge when I did these, but I was trying to capture their happiness together, sharing a joke. The first is acrylics, 12"x12", and took 2.5 hours (two hours yesterday, another 30 minutes today). It could use more work, but I was going for expressive over accurate. Still I may return to it.

The second is a loose charcoal sketch on toned paper, 12"x16", and took under an hour.

I have my eye on some of the others...

...thanks for doing this one, portraits are not easy for me, but you have caught the cheekiness and joviality of the moment, bravo, I like them both 😊👍🏼

Brisk, no nonsense sketches which capture the essence of the subject.

Love number one in particular, I saved it as well but haven't got to it yet. You captured the joy beautifully.
