Scooter - Study for portrait of Jed
10" x 8" Oil on Canvas
This is painted from a photo taken by me about three years ago. I love the way the light is tickling his face! I'm not a great photographer, so am pleased I captured his impish smile in this one! Jed's quite a character. Not sure what size the portrait will be. Will not crop so closely...will include his arms. Will change the division of the grass and driveway. I am keeping color notes but am not yet satisfied with the warms or cools in the skin tones...so, more mixing but am eager to satisfactorily finish this little study so I can go to work on the portrait!
