Oil on Canvas
When I took the photographs of this little boy in preparation for this painting, he had on a green t-shirt over his black turtleneck. I asked him if green was his favorite color. He replied yes, but that purple was his second favorite color.
So last week, when I was working on this painting, I tried to be true and give him a green t-shirt. But I was not happy with the painting, so I just painted over it. It wasn't just the shirt; I wasn't happy with his skin tones, and the more I messed with it, the more the drawing got off.
Today when I started over, I started on a new canvas. And I obviously decided to change the t-shirt color!
Although it's not a commission for his parents (it's another in my series of children reading), I do hope his Mother likes it.
