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.


  1. Terri, this is beautiful! You've captured the brilliant baby blues so masterfully and that hair is phenomenal! I thought he was sitting in a walker (those ones with all the attached learning toys) and this was a photo!

  2. Hi Sherry! You're right! He was sitting in a walker with the great little attached toys but I rearranged them for better balance. Thank you for the kind comment!

  3. Beautiful, what a precious little guy.

  4. This is adorable, Terri - great job!
