Todays progress on my oil painting.  Just starting on the 3rd little guy.  I am almost done of the first two. I'm having a time with the little one in the middle.  His features are do hidden.

I'm trying to capture the way the light plays on the couch, added some muted colors and am now working on the children with focus on the child on the left, giving him more light and color.  I have not done the faces of the boys on the right yet. Still more work to do on the couch, but I will be done soon.

Fridays update:
I worked about 4 hours today on this oil portrait.  It's rather tedious at this point because I've been concentrating on their faces and fingers and toes.  I've got a ways to go still.  I hope to have it done by the end of the month.

My little couch potatoes are starting to look better as I work on their faces and legs.  I still have to get their fingers and toes done after that.
I thought this was a pretty cool way of doing an actual portrait because mommies love to watch little boys when they are sleeping.  It's the only time they sit still.

A Work in Progress.
Oil Portrait of 3 little couch potatoes that I call "Tatertots"
I am trying to capture the way the sunlight shines on the children and on the couch.  Not such as easy task.  I am working in transparent layers, just to make it interesting.  I have not yet finished any of the boys faces or hands.  I'm leaving that for last. It is a sweet photo that my daughter took of her little boys and their friend.  I just had to paint it.  Wish me luck.,

This oil painting needed to be photographed outside today because my lighting in my studio is gone and the artificial lighting is just too strong to capture the colors rightly.  I have finished my color scheme and am now working on final touches on the little boys faces and clothing.

I am in my 4th session on this oil portrait.  I still have to do fingers and toes and then tackle the clothing in a more realistic way.I'm pleased with my composition and the colors I've chosen to set off the little guys on the couch.

I'm glad you like it Dene.  I'm out of the "mood" to paint the last couple of days so I haven't worked on it.  I hope I get back into the painting mood so I can finish it.  I know not to work when I don't feel like it.  I just ruin it when I do that.

Oil portrait
Work in progress
I just started on their faces.  This piece is 14" x 18"  and I've been working on it for a week so far.  I need to have it completed by the end of August for the Fall art show.  Wish me luck.  I've been gradually layering the couch and the wall.  I don't like solid colors in my work, so i just add a transparent layer now and then to get some interesting lighting from the sun.

Bức tranh thú vị . Tôi cũng chưa thích màu của bức tường , Có lẽ theo tôi nó cần giảm bớt màu vàng và nhẹ nhàng hơn mà vẫn không làm giảm sự tập trung vào các bé trai . Chúc bạn hoàn thành tốt nó .

I've started work on an oil portrait for an upcoming Fall Art Show.  This is my first weeks progress on it.  I don't really have a title for it yet.
