Painting children this age it’s like hitting a moving target, even though I got lucky with one photograph. I felt this a good one, as it told of the affection they both had for each other.
The photo was taken in the hallway of their home, as I really liked the space surrounding them, and was delighted with their Mother’s choice of clothes.
Taking the photo was challenging, trying to think between squeals of laughter and runs up and down the hallway.
I wanted this painting less Impasto and softer.
The client was delighted!
