Starting over on this portrait of my nephew, Jon, I decided to quiet down the drips and focus more on his face.  This newest painting of Jon is much easier to look at, in my opinion.  See the first one at the bottom of the post. 

His mom will be here next week to pick up the painting.  I think she'll approve.  The portrait I painted earlier this year of his brother, Peter, is shown here, too.  Hopefully they will they compliment each other nicely when Chris gets them both hung in her home. 

Jon's eyes are at least as blue as the painting shows, and he's a very gifted musician who frequently plays in London and surrounding areas. 

Painted with Transparent Watercolor over Fluid Acrylic drips on Cold Pressed 140# Arches, all are 22x30."



Older painting - on gesso-ed paper with strong focus on drippy technique
