My Boys

My Boys
20" x 16"
Acrylic on Canvas

So I really dove in this time! I actually painted a picture of my own children, so scary! Since I actually know what they look like you would think this would be easy, but no, I think that made it harder. Capturing that look, the exact way they hold their mouth, the look in their eyes. While I did not get it exactly right I was okay with it for a first shot. At least now I can say I have done it! I usually tend to blur faces out so they are not recognizable but I found it difficult to do when it was my own children. I guess the new dog will be next! Move over boys you are being replaced : )

I know what you mean about it being hard when you know them. This came out just wonderful though!
