Thomas, these are wonderful paintings! The little impish face on the first is captivating and I do love the red running along the school...this keeps the painting from looking to pedestrian...love it!

The second has a wonderful perspective and I like what you've done to the green pole...keeps it from being just a pole. These paintings are keepers! Gotta love 'em.

Charming. Lots of personality, and that's the most important thing. And I like how there's scenery to note in the background but it's kept in bold colors but simplified and which helps promote the youth theme.

The heads may have come out a bit large for the bodies, but that adds to a cherub appeal.

What great memories..

The first painting, I think the hedge has too much detail. Need to be softer like the foliage in the second painting..

If you are having trouble keeping lines straight like the roof top, try using masking tape. Make sure you press it firmly with your thumbnail on the edge where the paint is going so it wont bleed..
