Hi there, I had a booth in a art show last Saturday and Sunday, it was pretty slow. Met some wonderful people though and sold 7 pieces. Five of those were the little square canvases I recently posted.
This painting is 16 x 20 on a stretched canvas. I may submit it for the local arts festival in August if it turns out well. You might recall that I painted this a while back on a 8 x 10 canvas. This time I am working more on his likeness. This is my grandson setting in our chair and ignoring everything around him while playing his game. I am open for your critiques as I'm not sure where I want to make changes. I really liked his position and the way the light is hitting his hair and lashes. I painted the image the way it was in the photo, I realize the feet are large because of foreshortening. I thought the large feet made it cute and funny. Do you find it odd? Of course the piece isn't varnished so the darks have flattened out a bit. As usual my photos are not the best, the painting appears a bit more grayed down on here. Ok, lay it on me, lol.
