After a bit of a break (much needed long weekend with family) i approached the canvas slowly and with “a new sobriety” as my teacher put it. I worked mostly with burnt umber based glazes. I think the faces look better, more solid and ‘real’ somehow. My little boys eyes need whitening and his cheeks some rounding (chubby, not so flat!), the buttons on the jersey need attention, and i may need to lighten things up a bit and pay some attention to contrast. I’m also unsure about the background. It is sitting on our lounge wall (well, looming really) and i think i’ll take one more pass at it in a week or so. And then paint clouds!
