My third work session on the painting yielded a Giraffe for Uncle George and a Meercat for Aunt Madeline.
The 'client' (my grandson Nekoda) is pictured below! :-)
I'm figuring that after the composition gets filled in with other family members, I'll go back and make them more personalized-- with such things as eye color and other little idiosyncracies (but they won't be true caricatures). Then it will be time for lots of exotic plants. So far it's getting rave reviews from the 'people' it's depicting! :-)
I usually listen to music while painting, but today I traded in the Beatles, Queen and Led Zeppelin for ENYA!!!!!
