Dimension: 12x12

I just had to get started on this.. got this picture of my little Great-Grandson Mikey yesterday... His first school picture...`this is very wet..and the flash makes things look to light, but I am sure that will heal itself

Any comments welcome

Great-grandson?! Janice you have a VERY young spirit!! :) The expression is priceless and those eyes shooter marbles of light. Can't wait to see where you take this. The blue is spot on. :)

make sure to pinch his cheeks daily.

this is coming along very well. Don't think I can add much to help progress, but it looks like your structures are all defined and correct. just check your colors carefully so the blues, greens, and oranges don't get too powerful and unreal.

have fun and share finished one.

Janice, yes stop now ........... that's what makes it interesting to the viewer... something "might" be missing according to one person ...... another will say ........ that's a painting, and that's what it's all about. :wave:
