I wasn't happy with the little bloke's face so I've repainted him three times so far and finally got it right. Whew!

Used a different photo this time.

Nice painting, good looking boys.  Do you find that you begin to hold your breath when you have to redo something  ;)   And isn't it great when a painting is 'finished'.    One thing that stands out is the depth you have developed in your younger grandson.   I find this boy grabs my attention.  Had you considered adjusting the shadows and highlights on the older boy?

Hi Valerie, I very nearly scrapped the whole thing when I couldn't get the little one right and ended up using a different reference photo for the third attempt. The older lad does need to be adjusted but I will wait and see. If I get it back and ruin it my daughter-in-law would have me strung up to the nearest lightpole.
