    I haven’t posted for a while. My life is kind of a train wreck right now which seems to be The State of the Union. But I’ve dropped by to enjoy looking at al your lovely work. I started this at least a couple of months ago :

    Tillian Louella -<span class=”Apple-converted-space”>  </span>watercolor on 1/4 sheet Arches 140lb hot pressed. I’m growing quite fond of hot pressed for portraits. There’s nothing like a day at the farm with no interruption (excepting the dig and cats and chickens) to finish off a long-waiting painting. I’m calling it done – but we all know, I will continue to tweak it for a couple of day. I get to squeeze these cheeks tomorrow ❤️❤️

    Merry Christmas

    What a beautiful baby! Lovely portrait, Randy. You’ve done a wonderful job with her peaches and cream skin tone and those adorable cheeks.

    So chubby and cute. Lovely portrait of an adorable child!

    I see a major shadow in the photo from the front part of the ear and across the cheek.  Did you leave that out on purpose?

    I’m glad you are back on PW–missed you.

      Thank you Paula. I have three wonderful grandsons but this is my first chubby lil granddaughter and she is precious.

      The portrait is quite a bit lighter in tone than the photo and knowing me, after looking at it for a couple of days, I’ll go back in and deepen some of the shadows, lighten the eyes and add some detail to and around the ear. But I recently did another portrait of a 6-year-old and ended up making her look quite a lot older and a lot had to do with the darks. I could never recapture the cherub. I’ll post and you’ll see what I mean.

    Beautiful portrait of your chubby granddaughter and a lovely one of the older child though I do see what you mean about making her look somewhat older than 6.
