Baby Portrait




Well, here it is....finished....I gave the very best that I am at this time capable of. This portrait was a valuable learning experience for me and hopefully some of you can draw inspiration from it. I might touch it up in a few days once I look at it with fresh eyes. ;o )

Oh Christine, what a beautiful portrait. You do such fantastic work with your skin tones. Such delicacy and detail in the eyebrows! Drawing a face at this angle isn't easy and you have done a fabulous job!! You make doing a mouth with that shape look easy. :-) A perfect nose and such lovely eyes. Congratulations, this is fabulous!

Great work! I noticed how much detail you put into the stitches on his shirt...not something I would probably have the patience for, haha. Such a cute portrait!

Christine said...

Teresa, thank you so very much ! You are to kind and always generous with praise. I truly appreciate it always!! :o )

Thank you for noticing, Kelly! Yes, the stitches took a little while to do, but not so bad. ;o )

Sorry to be late with my comment Christine. I have been visiting family.
Wonderful portrait. There is so much character captured here. He is gorgeous. Love those eyes. Great job.

Christine said...

Hi Elena, awww your words make me blush. There is still so much to learn and at times I do not feel as good as you described me here. But I thank you for your kind words! ;o ))

It's quite alright Dors...there is no law that says you always have to comment. ;o )
I am glad you are back, but also that you got a chance to see your dear ones.

Christine said...

Vic, don't know if you'll read this, but I have been wanting to comment on your blog several times but seem to have problems. Your blog is not the only one my posts don't show up....wonder what the problem is?? Anyway, love your kitty! Great job!
