What's on my easel...still my Dad's portrait!

Is my Dad's portrait.  I have made progress and have implemented many of the suggestions from the HHG critique blog.  I still have some work to do on the child's hair where it meets my Dad's arm and background as well as the knee the child is sitting on and some tweaking...other than that I am pleased.  here is a picture of the painting and a close up of the face.  I used Chris Saper's newest book "Classic Portrait Painting in Oils' to help me with the wrinkles on my Dad's face.

Critiques still welcome!


  1. Looks great Maria! I'll have to check out that book - I'm always looking for tips and advice. You guys are so resourceful!

  2. This is looking so good. You've done a great job on his face and wrinkles. I'll have to look at that book too.

  3. Maria!!! Great job! I like the improvements. I need to look into that book for sure!!

  4. Fantastic! Two portraits in one. Very challenging. Well done.
    Happy Painting.
