A sunny summer day, bare feet and little boy in blue jeans. Perfect.
|Stage 7: Painting his blue jeans. When his mother chose these clothes for his portrait I was glad. I knew, with his blue eyes, dressing him in in the same color would be ideal. Plus, I could tell he was very comfortable dressed like this which helped him relax for the portrait.|
And then there was the slide...
Stage 8: Painting the slide. Adding the slide to the composition added color, contrast and a playfulness to the painting. He was so happy to sit and smile before he let go!
