Little Man

oil on panel

This little guy was fun to paint and as always, I learned a lot more about managing the medium while doing it. For instance, his fuzzy, downy baby hair was accomplished with a mix of washes followed by dry brushing and I was happily surprised with the outcome. I can almost smell the baby shampoo. And the little toys around him were a nice exercise in still life painting.
