Portrait painting in progress...

Hello Blog Friends and fellow artists!
Just wanted to share a little progress of a painting I'm working on.   She's not perfectly proportioned but I just love how she's turning out.  I keep staring at her wondering what she's thinking.  This is actually the same painting from the picture in the previous post.  I've just kept adding more layers to her.  I used golden acrylics, gesso, caran d'ache crayons, and stabilo pencil.  Hope you like her too. :)

Thank you all for your encouragement on my last post.  School is going great!  Now I just need to worry about keeping the girls away.  I've had girls showing up at my house wanting to see him!  I'm so not ready for this.  Girls seem a lot bolder nowadays.  
Wishing you a Happy Weekend!
Love from Oregon,
My darling boy and Lucy the dog


  1. Oh my! I love how the painting is coming along. So beautiful, Jenny!

    And I am so glad that school is going well! (A little attention from the girls aside!) I agree, girls are bolder these days. I am often quite taken a back by the confidence that all kids show these days. (or am I just showing my age?)

    Thank you for visiting my new place. :)

  2. all beautiful faces!
    + i LOVE your painting!!!

  3. Wowwwww! What a beauty filled post! Your girl is so stunning, those gentle skin tones are just exquisite!
    And my what a handsome chappy your son is!(the girls clearly have good taste!) :)
    However I like to think my daughters will not be so bold...hmmmm I think I definitely AM showing my age! :) huge hugs to you xx

  4. She's so beautiful---love the layers--it makes all the difference--I just want to touch this!
    And you are so right--girls and boys (for that matter) are growing up too fast--sometimes I feel bad for them because they are almost forced to be this way with all of the outside influences. I loved being a kid! I'm sounding kind of old, aren't I?? :)

  5. Oh she is sooooo beautiful Jenny... and she does have a pensive look about her... wonder what she is thinking too...
