First Pass

Aiden, IN PROGRESS graphite, 6 x 4, TMDD



My  first pass  presented the problem of a dimple on the sunlit  side of his face.   If it doesn't have a challenge, I'm usually not interested, but since when are three year olds never a challenge--in real life or on paper?

    1. And sweet with all their fooling around and running you ragged. This kid is really a knock-out and high on energy. I hope I can capture that.

    1. The tilt and twist of his head, his supreme look of self-satisfaction is what got me. Again, the candid shot, one I did not take, is poor lighted. I am just going to have to figure out how to deal with those most common conditions if I'm going to insist upon spur-of-the-moment expressions. I do love the spontaneity. Thank you. Tomorrow, i'll see if that dimple is going to do me in?
