    Keep surfing the portrait wave! Portrait of my 2 y old son... a few hours in. Gotta do something about the yellow skin color... otherwise he looks like a liver disease textbook exhibit.

    Your painting style is like Leonardos Sfumato-technic. You could paint like the old masters.:thumbsup:

    ... or maybe I should turn the painting into a little fat orange cherub!

    Short update. I went around the sun from orange to white to yellow to pink with the skin color values, but finally could settle for something that satisfies me somehow. Of course I went too dark too quickly and had to overlay many parts with white (ouch) and redo them. Soon the real fun part of the painting will start... E9E19BDC-7DD6-4CF3-8833-B34BFE3BBDA6.jpeg

    Very nice. :thumbsup:
    Going too dark is the story of my life.
    Certainly if I do everything in transparent.
    Opaque and transparent over it works better for me.

    Thanks Erwin. I should know better by now, but it’s a mistake easily repeated.

    I can’t promise anything... although it’s not chicken or diving suits I got in mind.

    B29ED63F-7058-4FD1-9478-ED124EA7D401.jpeg Another update. I worked a bit on the background - filled it in with a traditional brush, and I will blend the hard contrasts from the brush strokes with airbrush layer on.

    I was teeing off to go strange on this one, but now Tuffnutz’ voice is in my head, and I hesitate to finalize the idea I originally had... well, maybe another time.
