Most interesting job stitchbabe. You have captured the essence of the child very nicely. Its a little too yellow for my taste, but it might be your intent or your monitor. Im curious about the canvas texture that shows up in a few places such as the shadow area of the shirt near his neck, his cheek, his hat, and his left shoulder. Does this show up after you apply the canvas texture? And if so, why only those areas? Im sorry to say I dont understand how you do these paintings. I just know if that were my boy, Id be thrilled at your creation. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone. Glad you like it.

BYNX: I wanted to paint with warmer colors as I felt the original reference was on the cold side. The textures you speak of are the result of using chalk in those areas. When I use canvas as my background, texture of the canvas will come through as I use the chalk. Hope this makes some sense.

Great job Babe. So do you print it on a canvas then mount? I was at a photo show recently and saw a do-it-yourself canvas mounting kit. Very inexpensive and gives a great stretched canvas look to a print.

Hi Bynx, thanks a bunch! Yes, I've seen the DIY mounting kits. I'm just not very good at that sort of thing. I get my work set on canvas usually on a floating frame. It's very attractive and they put a good coating on the canvas to protect it. I actually get it done by sending it out to a company in Newfoundland. I am VERY impressed with their work and treatment of my paintings.
