Sammy I think you need at least a shoulder and some arm with maybe her leaning on a pillow. If you don't have the actual child handy do you have another maybe a neighbor child who you could pose and take pictures. I would have to have a model I could not make that kind of pose up. You need a child boy or girl around the same size and age. I have done that at art class when I get stuck with hands or such.

Judi - What a great photo!   Something to prop her chin on  like this would be really cute, too, Sammy - maybe with some tree limbs, shrubbery (did I spell that right?) and some flowers.

Hi guys, 

Sam:  I totally agree with Holly...  it appears that Kaetlyn totally adores Clayton and he her,  the picture is a story all by itself.  It would be more difficult to do a double,  I know they terrify me because as soon as I get the first done i'm afraid I'll mess it up by making a mistake on the second...   but if you can that would make for a wonder painting for the both of them to share....  I posted a photoshoped idea for the other side of her ear.  by bringing her hair down over most of her hear it could work,  while doing this I thought about using a pillow under her chin as if she were clutching it and laughing.  Your grand kids are adorable,  I remember having fun doing Hayden...  I also have a Clayton and a Kaitlyn.  

Fred,  I love your monochromatic,  I can see it isn't to far away from those wonderful tabletop mountains.   and Haint or Haunt.  he is one happy ghost...  I so love your technique.  

Holly,  I love the bowl of apples

Joyce , I can see myself in a pumpkin patch in the full moonlight.  I love the glow of the light on the leaves...  wonderful job.

Jen:  have fun with trick or treater grands...

Sandi and Geri,  your ideas a good too.

Fred - I like your Fisherman's Cove - it has a lot of movement & the water is nice too.  I love your spook house with the ghosty in tree, the shuttered windows, house is great - thanks for helping me get into the season!

Judy   C&C appreciated

Thanks, Judy, for the fun photo of your daughter.  That's creates good possibilities.  And Holly, thanks for the idea of her inside a window.  Good idea.  And Marsha, Thanks for working on Kaetlyn in your photo program and giving her an ear.  That is most helpful.

Jen, I plan to look through my photos of children to see what I can find.  I also couldn't do this sort of thing with a reference photo.

Marsha, I agree that it is a nice, touching photo as is but I've already done a portrait of Clayton and Haidyn and am working on individual portraits for each of the seven grand grands.

Fred:  the thought is there but that was just a photoshop rendition of Sam's grand daughter not a painting or art piece,  although I did enjoy working on Sams GD Hayden and I would love to have a try at Kaetlyn, but I have three children  I am working on now when I have time.   I wish I was re-retired and could just paint and draw....

I done this for Halloween using felt tip pens it looked pretty good until I tried blot in a back round using Dr Martins hydrus liquid w/c's to create a spooky effect but it messed it up ,I still think the technique has possibilities

Fred, is that an evil pumpkin bat?  I like the colors you used and agree that it has possibilities.

Sammy this is a painting I did of my grandson it might give you an idea of how yours could look.

 

Not sure this was the finished one but it gives you the idea.
