Been working on this for a couple of days now and have managed to just get basically the base tones in....I have to agree whole heartedly with Sherry painting family is really hard! :lol:

LOVE it, Marge! Showing us WIPS is a great teaching tool for those just beginning to work in Painter's Alley. :thumbsup:

Thank you Jean and Skinny :wave:

Here is an update adding more colors in the skin and roughly did the hat so I could get a feel for the shadows. Don't know if it is helping me LOL :lol:

Coming along nicely, I think, Marge

Hmmm.....i'll go for a bagel and a coffee and sit here....and wait for more advances.....promises to be a good portrait.....:) :thumbsup: Is my idea or you've changed somehow your technique (it has a more watercolor feeling than your last pieces)?

Played around with this some more this evening after watering ;o)
I am having an awful time with his shadow of beard ... the poor kid has had to shave 2 and sometimes 3 times a day since he was 17 so you can imagine how heavy a beard he has leaving a shadow even 30 min. after shaving. LOL

He's looking great Marge :thumbsup: and the beard looks good to me :)

It's shaping very nicely, Marge...:) The beard shadow can be a real bugger, but I think you've got it under control.

Coming along great Marge. You seem to do better with your family than I do.

Thank you Jean , Skinny and Sherry :wave:
I have turned off the bg not sure at all that I like it mainly because he has alot of light coming from the side since it is outside and the bg I thought was too dark to simulate that. So back to ground level with that. LOL Defined some more areas of his face.

Here is the finished piece hope he likes it...:lol: I have printed it out and it looks good on paper. ;o)

05-05-2006, 12:36 PM
