“Eight and a Half”

With an expression such as his, I found painting this young boy irresistible. He was sitting under a canopy tent, with light hitting him from the side, which presented interesting challenges to paint.

    Terry this is so nice. love the skin color and the interesting colors you used around the eye area. I think the darker bg is perfect! really adds contrast which makes for a very interesting painting!

      Thanks, Wyna. I originally had a much lighter background, but it wasn’t working for me. I too like the added contrast of the darker background. Always new boundaries to break!
