Too many in-progress at one time. Up to seven. Lots of fun though. I like what is happening so far in this one so I thought that I would post it. The blocky, digitized, over-sized look is a long story... see Art Business Forum, "Scanner or Camera" thread.

What a cutie! The face is very expressive and I like the untied shoelace... Are you sure the knees are grubby enough, though? http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

I like this very much. Is it a commisioned piece or one of your own kids?

Fabulous. What a delightful little boy. A very realistic painting.

Yes, it is a commission. Here is the reference picture that the client sent. Samuel's mother said - [Do whatever you like with the pose. He loves baseball. His eyes don't really look like that. He looks like he's been up for days.] I am still tweaking the likeness - especially the mouth/cheek area. Hard to gauge it when the client says that the photo likeness is off. She has just recently sent more references to help - yes, the artist will beg. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif I will post those later. I just happened to already have this one on the computer.

WOW - you are good! I love the painterly quality of this portrait. You really captured the likeness yet it has the water quality I love in watercolor. I really like the way you did the jeans and shows - soft and not taking anything away from the face. I would think the client would be pleased.

Tammy...what an awesome portrait! and such a darling to paint!

Considering the size of the bat..his fingers seem a bit long...or maybe just not as pudgy as the photos. (okay so I'm picky)

If you ever want to do some lessons...hint..hint...I'd sure like to study them!

A beautiful piece of work. I especially like the clever way you have used the lighting to draw attention to the untied shoelace. It brigs out his character. Thank you for posting it. Mary

I am hoping to post a tutorial in the Drawing Forum first. Of the projects that I have running, the most pressing piece is now a pencil commission due June 20. So I am needing to put the other in-progress pieces on hold to clear the work area for pencil related supplies. This pencil commission will be the piece that the tutorial will work off of. If I can get my scanner to pick up the details that I will need for this tutorial I hope to post about a week after the portrait gets delivered. Next, I hope to do one for watercolor. If I run a bit late on these tutorials forgive me - my 7 month old (youngest of four) just started crawling yesterday...our new house has never been babyproofed so I anticipate a few distractions as Little Zachary shows us the ropes.

Oh, a PS about the untied shoes: The reason that they seem to be in bright light is that they are still in such an early phase of three-color glazing. The shoe on the left isn't even drawn in yet. Mabey I will use those shoes in the watercolor tutorial. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Tammy this is such a lovely piece. I can't wait to see it finished.
