Little Ben’s Portrait Finished

baby portrait
I love this little guys smile and that wonderful reflection in the mirror behind him.

BTW I use and abuse all family members and friends, as I grab photographs to work from whenever I see something cool so I can practice painting of the human form.  The photograph I am using for this one was taken by Sandi Shirley, my co-grandma. Thank you!

My goal was to get Ben’s likeness and I finally feel that I have done it. It does look just like him. Yay! Such a cute baby with two of the deepest dimples you have ever seen. Dimples are not easy, go ahead and try em. It was tricky to get the lighting right, but I feel like the reflection is working correctly too. At least I hope so. What do you think? Be gentle… I’m an emotional artist ya know. 🙂
