This painting is very close to done, but still in progress. It’s the time between when a painting seems almost done and when it’s actually done that often takes the most time, for me.
After just finishing a big portrait painting last week (which came out really well, but I forgot to take a photo before handing it off), I wanted to do a painting of my son that is sort of an anti-portrait. He’s reading Calvin and Hobbes while the puppy looks out the window. I’m really happy with how this painting is coming out – with the design and color-shapes; but there are some little things I really want to finesse.
