I've achieved twenty portraits. Only 10 to go...I will be attempting siblings as a way to reach my goal of 30 before months end.
Number 17: Irish Kisses, sourced from Paint My Photo, thank you Barbara Tester :)
At first I wasn't all that pleased with this, thinking it to be more illustrative than a true portrait...and it may well be, but it has grown on me and I can see some of the good things I did with the paint.
Onto 18 - argh! I'm calling this Nutty Butty, not because of what he's eating, but because it drove me nutty! I am NOt pleased with the result and have fussed, fussed, fussed with it...it's done, not great work, but hey, they can't all be good :/
Nineteen turned out well, if I may say so myself :) again sourced from a Paint My Photo member, Li Newton. This is Joshua, I haven't come up with a title for him yet, any ideas. I am proud I maintained the light source. I also liked painting dark skintones. The darker pigment reflects light and let's me add all sorts of yummy colors :)
And finally 20 - our good friends son Andrew, giving his Father a somewhat quizzical look. maybe I shoulfd title this, "What Dad?!". I had fun with this and threw down salt in the background and chose hot colors to play with. I think it worked out well :)
That's it for boys, onto siblings and if time a do-over of a few. I have this idea of showing all thirty somewhere and calling the show June Kids, by Judy. Corny, I know ;)
Have a nice weekend all and thanks for stopping in to see what's on the easel :) ~ Judy
