Could this guy be any cuter? He is alot of fun to paint and I am lucky enough to have been sent many photos of him, I think he is smiling in every photo. He is definitely a happy boy! I have most of the lights and darks blocked in and have added some of the details to his eyes, nose and mouth.
More layers will be added to build up both the boy's and mother's features and the darks on the mother's sweater will be blocked in next to better judge the tonal range of the overall painting.
