Homework? 6 x 6"
Well the Bird, Bottle, Egg painting is drying and I'll post it soon. Sometimes you are where you are and you hope a painting becomes a stepping stone to better things. Sometimes you're just too close for perspective! So, I decided to turn around and paint this quick sketch of my son, while he was doing homework, (or was he playing?!), on the computer. Anyway, he was kind enough to linger just long enough. I love painting from life and seeing the nuances of color and light. It's capturing them that's the challenge!
