05/01/11 Little Boy Blue by Carol Morgan
This is my neighbor's grandson, Christopher. I was just working on a monochromatic level blocking him in and I liked it so much that I left it as it was. If you've ever done this as an exercise, it is very interesting and can be challenging. At the last minute I gave his cheeks a bit of color and used a palette knife on his blonde hair. The whole effect was widely approved by my painting friends in the studio, so I "Stepped away from the canvas."
