Cyril,  the challenge for me is always the patience and stopping before the portrait is finished😀

Finally finished this portrait of Tommy my sisters 18 month old grandson.  Thought this would be much easier than the one I did of Mila. .  Not so!  Could have done a better job of the fleecy jacket.  Best I go review Nolans video on drawing clothing again. :)

 :heeha: Jill this is stunning. Awesome job.  O0   

I don't have my big magnifier with me, but I really can't see much wrong with his jacket or anything else!  :detective:

Don't be so critical of yourself  :nono:   He's brilliant and you have my permission to say so.  O0    ;)

Thank you Mea!  It's such fun to see how much I can "see", so that I can capture the unique expression.

Wow, Jill, a truly beautiful portrait of Tommy, in actual fact, at first glance, I thought that it was a photograph. You have really excelled in your portraiture.  Carry on the outstanding work.
