Sammy In Blue - Portrait Of A Boy
Painting - Impressionist Oil Portrait On Board
This is an unusual portrait for me in many ways. It is very small, only 6 by 6 inches. The light source is very cool which is not my usual preference. But I loved the way the north lighting played on the child's sun-deprived skin. I kept the colors much more toned down than I usually do too--it just seemed appropriate.
One of the wonderful things about being human, is having free will! I enjoy the look of empowerment that children get when they realize they are free to exercise that will. I enjoy exercising that will as a painter. Why lock yourself down into a specific palette, technique, or methodology? I like having choices, and Sammy does too.
As a side note, this painting enlarges beautifully! Brush work is important to me and you'll find most of my painting make wonderful prints, much larger that the original paintings.
