Ethan on a Bench

8x10 oil on canvas panel
This was one of the most difficult paintings I've done.  I thought the shadows would be easy.  I redid the bench several times.   But one thing I notice is that he's sitting nicely on the bench with the bend of his legs just right.  He loved his orange monster shirt and crocs and so does grammies!  


  1. It's good. He does look as if he is seated. I need to work on mixing colors for blonde hair; mine is always too yellow.

  2. Thank you, Sally! Skin and hair have so many colors, don't they?

  3. Awe! I like how you lit the right side, and you did a great job on his face.
