Smile for Me



This was done for the WDE (Weekend Drawing Event) on WetCanvas this weekend. The reference was from Helen Percy Lystra, who happens to be a blogging buddy on my links. Check out her work if you have a chance. This is her gorgeous grandson. I've been experimenting more and more with portraits in that forum. This is about 4 x 4.

Oh Joan! This is exquisite! You've caught that spark of excitement and interest in this little guy's eyes. And is that a little cleft in his chin I see? Be still my heart!!

Mickey - Thanks. I was happy with the results.

Kat - He was just soooooo cute! Thank you.

Sherry - Isn't he a sweetie? Now I'm itching to try another baby portrait. Thanks.

Anita - Thanks. I have to look on your blog and see if you continued that baby book you started.

Lin - Thanks so much. I feel a bit better with each portrait I try. Some work out so easily, and some it is hard to get a likeness.

Marta - Many thanks!
