WIP - almost done!

And we're moving along! I decided to go with blue for the cousins shirt that's on the left. It was black in the reference photo, but black would be too flat, so I decided to go with blue. That is just indigo blue and copenhagen blue...with a layer of orange under the indigo to make it darker. His eyes are bothering me. I think I need to lower the eye on our right...slightly. I'll take another look at it tomorrow...with fresh eyes myself. Maybe hold it up to a mirror.

I don't like how the sky is coming along...I think I need another value in there for more of a subtle gradation. But we're getting there.


  1. I'm no artist, but it looks amazing already. Can't wait to see the finished product! :)

  2. Thanks Jenna! I saw your website, looks like we share the same name...and the same nickname. That's pretty cool, huh? lol. :)

  3. Just found your blog; beautiful portraiture! I'll be back to see more. Create on...
