Took my camera to a kid's rodeo last Sunday and caught this little guy (about 6 years old). Had to try my hand at painting him. (My first acrylic portrait.)

Great job with your portrait! I think kids no matter what medium are harder to do than adults.

Thank you, for all the comments. It is nice to hear those kudos, my head is swelling.. :)

Since I really did not capture just how young he really looks, here's a photo for reference. This little guy was my high point in this Junior Rodeo. (He was a contestant in the stake race.)
