8" x 10" oil on canvas board
This is Jo my 8 year old grandson, I managed to get a ref photo in an unguarded moment when he was playing with some other children at the park. He has such a very pale skin that it has been really difficult to get a usable photo to work from. I had to darken the background for some contrast.
Jo is the chattiest little boy that I have ever known and is full of silliness and giggles so posing was out of the question. Still I prefer natural poses anyway, I just had to catch him when he held still for a second!
