I was in the middle of painting two kittens when I suddenly needed a kitty break and paint something else. I had a hankering to paint some figures and looked through the photos that I took on the last exhibition and found one of my artist neighbour chatting to a prospective client who was standing with his wife, but all you could see of her was a hand and a foot which looked rather odd, so well was she blocked out by her husband. I decided to leave her out of the picture, everything went well until I got to the face in profile and that took me the longest time to get it to resemble Liam half way.
It is late and the light is almost gone so this isn't the best photo of the painting, I might re-photograph it tomorrow and then its back to the kitteehs...
