Sam Thinks

I wanted to do a portrait of one of my boys. Sam was reluctant to ‘sit’ for me so I took a photo on my iphone and painted from that. It really is different painting from a photo, not bad, just different. This was looking really pretty cool after about five minutes and I almost stopped (Mason told me I should) but I decided to keep going. The black outline happened at the last minute, probably could have done without it, but too late. I tried using a sable brush, which really seems to smooth things out, quite different from the impasto method I have been working in. Anyway, done, and the kid really does think!
