    B7CF131E-FE47-4C4B-B127-011FD2DA1CA2.jpeg My best friend asked me some time ago to paint portraits of her twin grandsons. I felt it was a bit too much for me but couldn’t tell her no, so I’ve been chipping away at it for a while. I’m using Yupo 11” x14” for each and Createx Illustration colors. Hoping for the best with the faces.

    Thank you, very nervous about the faces and skin tones.

    Looks great so far Rebecca, just take your time As you already have been and paint light so you have a chance of stopping before you go too heavy. Paint what you see on the reference even if you think it doesn't look right at the time. If you do that you should have an exact copy.

    Thank you Lee. The physical size of it is the biggest problem for me. Their faces are so tiny I can’t get the detail like I want it. I should have said no or suggested just facial portraits. . Bigger is easier for sure.

    This is where your skill comes in. You don't have to do mega detail. The most important thing is to have the faces accurate, that will be most of it done, just enough detail for the brain to fill in the blanks.

    Look what Steve Leahy does on a Razor Blade.. Super detail.

    You can do it!

    I made a little progress. I had to use a regular paint brush on some of the tiny details.
