Tyler

11"x 14" Watercolor on 200lb Cold Press Paper
Another recent portrait of a baby, but this one of a little boy. Painting a baby's portrait is quite different from an adult. One must use a totally different palette and hard lines are rarely effective on the soft, sweet face of an infant. I loved doing this painting...especially portraying the adorable pouty lip expression.

Well you certainly did a great job w/ this doll. Babies are really hard to make natural & lifelike. Most paintings I've seen tend to look like a DOLL. Great job.

There is a beautiful sweetness to this portrait. The baby is very lively and full of zest and curiosity. Beautiful work.
