Hey Michael, this is Fabulous, I love the bright bold colors and loosness/brushstrokes in this great portrait,
the expressions are priceless.
Your fabric, shading and tones are wonderful.
ony thing is the Bright Yellow balloon, almost distracting from it..
would possible work better toned down a bit maybe with a paler yelow white wash over the center and shading around the edges,
to give it a more rounded shape and little less bold.

Great work!!:thumbsup:

hi Kathy,

I love the Balloon....for its extreme off balance effect. it was a big part of the point. You are right....it is loud and distracting. Yhanks for taking time to look..:)
