I almost forgot to post these two portraits I finished of my nephew’s children. I’m trying to see if I can finish doing all of the children in the family, just to do it and say I did it. Hey, it’s great practice,too!
I do love the way these two came out. I’ll never understand it, but I always get to a point in a painting where I feel like it’s just not working. I’ll just keep at it, change things, add color, erase things, add shading….. and then suddenly it transforms into a beautiful finished piece. I still look at pieces I’ve done from long ago and wonder how I ever did them. I didn’t have all the access to instructional videos then, or anything! It was just library books, then!
But anyway, here they are..Natalynn and Jack…two pastel portraits.
