This cutie is my new grandnephew, Sebastian who I got to meet before Christmas. I came home with lots of photos of him and am going to try to do several portraits of him. (Hence the title: Sebastian 1.) I like the painting but I don't think it really looks like him...something is off, and it isn't just his sparkling energy. I'm going to finish the second one of him that I started yesterday, which looks much more like him. This is 5 x 7.
I reworked this a bit and made his head shorter. I think it helped a bit.
