View Full Version : My Son Justin (X post portraiture)

I started another portrait and I'm still not done with the last one, but I guess if I want to learn to paint portraits I will have to do a lot of them. This is one of my son Justin. I just started it and I have a good bit still to do on it, but I wanted to show what I have done so far. I don't have the skin color correct yet and the eyes are a bit off and there's a good bit of detail left to do. Acrylic approx. 10 x 12

What a handsome man, I know your very proud of him too!
You have done a great job already with his portrait, they aren't easy and yes takes alot of practice.
Keep up the good work, anxious to see the finished painting!!

Awesome start, people are so hard to get right and especially eyes so I'll be watching with interest!

The eyes are a bit small. But, really, for just starting, you're doing great! The likeness is good. A very handsome boy you have there! Can't wait to see it finished! :)
