The boy in paint

Some more portrait work this week. My son was willing enough to have another sketch while we were winding our way home on the train yesterday.

I took this view and the tonal sketches from the last post to attempt this quick painting in acrylics. Still not up to scratch according to the sitter.

Anyway – as far as thinking about tone and technique – I’ve managed to find some places where there is a sense of life  (I’ve been looking at Titian!) – that idea of blending shade into shade .. what a hand to do that.

    • Thanks so much Lianne – I love your blog – it’s so rich with images and stories. I wish I had more time at the moment to explore the blog universe but work is a full on – on the plus side some of it is geared toward projects from here linking into Africa so must keep on that track too…
