iPOD X

I posed my son with a plain background in pastel a couple years ago. This one is in acrylics 22x25 with a wee bit of landscape: sequence follows and need to tweak: Derek

Re: iPOD X

Nice work, it's cool too see an iPod in the painting. I like the red shirt with the green background.

Re: iPOD X

Wow what a great portrait Derek. And very interesting to include the iPod. Really places it in its time forever. Do you do a lot of portrait work because you seem very good at it.

Gorgeous! If I could just do the iPod cord that well I'd be thrilled!

Very nice, and good that you put him outdoors. He's just picking his favourite song before enjoying the scenery, right?

Quite a departure for you but as always exceedingly well done. Bravo!

Re: iPOD X

Fantastic work. The look is not unfamiliar to me since my son is about that age as well.

I enjoyed each step as well, and any of them could have been called complete.

Nicely done.

Mike
