Child's Portrait in oil
see my website for more info on portraits: www.cathyannstudio113.com/
Most of the time I prefer to work from life but with children, a photo will do. It is also possible to get really wonderful candids to work from, since kids can be very wary of the invasive camera when asked to "sit".
I created this oil painting from a photo that I used for a watercolor study last year. See left. It took a year of looking and more practice with color and children's faces to get to this stage. This little piece took way longer than I would invest in an alla prima but the subtlety required it and the layers of glazing as well.
I love painting people.
