Sunday Sketches and another portrait!

Hi guys,

Hot on the heels of my last post and couple of portraits I decided to do my next one with a subject very close to home, I found a baby picture of my eldest who is now nearly 9 and painted a picture of him when he was very young.
 As a painting by it's self I quite like it but when you look at the photo I think you can see that it's not quite the same, interestingly enough I think  I managed to paint him looking older than the photo and more like what he looks like now. I enjoyed it though and will put this down as another practice/experience, either way I'm having fun and have broken my artistic block! :0)
Looking forward to catching up with you all at Sunday Sketches!

This looks amazing.. I tried to do a few of my daughter at different times, but could never come close so have abandoned that for now... your looks really great and it looks like you have captured a mischievous look to it...xx

It's a beautiful portrait - that's so funny - my post for today exactly addressed this issue - why do our portraits sometimes not exactly look like the specific people in mind?
