Billy

by Kristin H.
(Ohio)

I painted this on white board. This painting is about 28" x 36". My favorite part of the painting, and the hardest part was his darting eyes. I wanted to capture the feeling in his eyes. I also liked the distressed background to contrast the clean lines. I would have put some more detail in the forehead and neck.

Hi Kristin,

Wow, I like the painting. A very special technique, looks modern. The stripes in his shirt are a good combination with the green stripes in the background.

Perhaps you could highlight the neck a little on the right side, the same light colour as in the face, then it will be more one with the face, but that's just my idea.

Anyhow, you made a beautiful painting.

I like your work. I like the colours, it looks very modern.

As you have commented on the neck yourself, so will I. It looks almost like he is wearing a polo necked jumper and this would have worked only it goes right up to his ears so it doesn't look right because of this. You could amend just the very top of this to make it look like a polo neck.

All in all it is a good effort - I do like it. Well done.
