“The Kids” for Emmalie: Complete

Here’s the final version of Emmalie’s requested portrait!



I added color to the background with light washes, which overlapped the kids just a little and deepened the saturation.



I decided not to outline the entire work in black, but you’ll see that I did outline the outer edges of their heads and the bottom of their busts. With touches of drips and drops, the painting was complete!

I think it’ll look nice framed, with an olive green, brown, navy, or maroon matting.

Here is a close-up:


I believe he has brown eyes, but I thought it would be fun to add blue, and a tiny bit of green. They look much more blue in these photos than when viewing the painting in person.

It’ll ship on Monday.
