Nick (detail)

I'm trying on this detail of a portrait I'm doing of my son. It's actually a large painting with a head/torso shot and a lot going on in the background, but he has very strong features and I like how his face has kind of a Statue of Liberty look going on. That's the huge advantage of painting on panel, you can actually crop a painting if you choose. This, however, is on canvas. It's not finished so I'll just see where it goes...

  1. Well, he sure is a handsome one! Look at how blue his eyes are! I suspect he'd give Paul Newman a run for his money with that color.
