I started working on a painting of six cousins, though they've named themselves "High Five-and-a-Half" because number six is half their size. Or at least he was. He's catching up now. But just last night I heard that he'll always be known as "half". What a lucky little guy who will likely be the biggest of them all one day.
I'm not as far along as I would have liked to have been because I painted over my first run at the image. That's my favorite thing about acrylics...you can just paint right over what you're not a fan of.
Here's where I am so far.
|I painted the basic colors of he background|
and sketched the image on top. I started painting
some of their shorts before I remembered to snap a pic.
|I began adding some basic colors. I have a lot of work|
to do with their basic shapes and tons of work to do on
details, but I'm much happier with how this version is going.
I promise it'll move past the ugly cartoon phase.

What a great story. Good start to a very special painting. They will be fighting over this one, Kali!ReplyDelete
