Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

Nice job Kathy! I chose this one and just as I posted up popped this thread. The whole time I was painting that lil face I was wondering what was on his mind....YOu have captured that look very well.

Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

You know, the funny thing is he's a really good boy, very cooperative. He just has this really expressive face. He did that because I was trying to take his picture when I saw him leaning against the fire hydrant. I will work on the painting some more tomorrow and post tomorrow.

Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

What a cutie! Congrats on finding time to do a painting of your own. He sure does look as if he's up to something! That's maybe why he appears to you to be cross-eyed. I see him as just scrinching up his eyes and face.

Also, happy belated birthday.

Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

What a great kid !! This lad has to be a lot of fun to have around- never a dull minute, I'll bet ! I'm so glad you were able to take the time to do one of your pictures- this is the one I wanted to try initially because I love the set of his feet/runners... but right now I'm madly in love with little girls ! I can see the love you have for this young man- you've looked at that wonderful face many times to be able to capture the look so well !
Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures from which to choose, they make me wish we all had time for this to be a daily event, instead of just a weekend one !

Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

Well, this was my choice too - for me, I couldn't resist the shy, sideways look, though I couldn't capture it properly in OPs: and his stance is so typical of a little boy 'hanging around', leaning on anything that's handy!
He looks a super little fellow and you've done a really nice interpretation of him.

Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

Here's an update. About another hour on it. I think I've fixed the eye I was having trouble with though I'm not completely satisfied with the likeness yet. But overall I'm enjoying this painting. Each portrait gets a little easier.

Woohoo! Outstanding!
I knew little shading would soften his face... Will keep an eye for sure!

Re: WDE May 22 - Fire Hydrant Boy

Since I've had some extra time on my hands, I worked some more on Dylan from last week. My major disappointment with this painting is that I was unable to get his feet in so I'm thinking of redoing it.
