|Work in progress, Son #2 detail. He's good enough for now.|
|Work in progress - Jon. He's tough, he can take it.|
This guy has needs--a little feathering here, some working in gray lines-- but for now, I'll let him perk. I have no doubt this painting when finished will hang on the wall and haunt me, but that will be it. There will be no going back under this bridge next year or the year after that. --Actually, this doesn't look too bad. He's a pretty good rendition of what bashing with a flash does to forms and color. You can see the effects more on Jon.
Son #3 got a beating. I laid into him mercilessly. It was a good start, but now he needs to be cooled down and defined. It's not going to be painless. It's a good thing he played football. He can take anything I can brush out.
Painterly will be the description for this triple portrait--perhaps amateurish as well?
