this photo really doesn’t do the painting g justice. Being that it was taken on my Samsung it sharpens everything automatically. So for the average photo. I like to take, say snaps of the kids or pets it’s fine, but when photographing portraits it can make parts that look soft in real life too sharp. Such as their lips a D shadows on their skin. Ultimately I will scan this painting for and it will reflect the original alot better.
I have been itching to get into my studio to work on this portrait. I am loving g the challenge of painting people, especially children as their skin is so soft.
So far I think there has been 20 hours plus work gone into this and I think there will be many more, however I will be sad to see it finished. So if you are interested in commissioning a portrait of your favourite human let me know!
