Sebastian 1

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.

How utterly adorable, Joan!! I can see you'll have lots of inspirational material for your portraits!!!! I gave up trying to capture my grands ... I felt like I was insulting them with my attemps -- but you will do incredibly well!!! Keep it up Joan ---!!

Adorable baby! I like it! It's hard to get a baby portrait (or any portrait) to look exactly like the subject. Can't wait to see the next one.

Lin - Thanks. I would be happier if it looked more like him.

Mickey - At least it looks like a baby. lol Thanks.
