Todays practice

This little cherub  was so darn cute, he was hard to paint!

This little girl was sucking in her bottom lip.

And the mother was smiling and her teeth were showing.  Not that I am making excuses, but…..just saying.  

This one is just kind of cheating.  Copying a master painter's painting.  Actually there is a lot to learn from that experience.  One would think it would be an easier process.  But when you are painting next to a master's copy, you quickly find it is difficult.  How did he get that color?  Why doesn't the nose I am painting look like it is coming off the page?  How did he get the corners of her mouth to turn up like that?  And THE EYES….well, that is another 10,000 paintings.  It's the journey folks.
