Happy Memories

Happy Memories

Canvas on board - 46 x 55cm. This is copied from a photo taken of my son when he was 10 years old (he's nearly 29 now)and we were living in Holland.

I wanted to capture this special moment. He looks so pleased with himself.

To get the likeness was very difficult, but it's almost there. I like the way his clothes turned out and I have to thank my art teacher for showing me how to create volume in a previous painting.
I need more pratice painting water!

Hi Audrey,

The boy does look happy. Nice sunny painting.
I like the folds and the light and shadows on the trousers. Well done!

Such a cheerful picture! You've selected colours to describe the brightness of a sunny day in a very successful way. I like the combination of water, sky and boy's clothes blue shades.

Hi Audrey:
The expression on the boy's face says it all. Love your colour combination and shading. I think maybe a few white horizontal lines in the water would bring it to life.....but that's just my opinion. Depending on the paint you used you could wipe them out with a clean damp brush.
Mops.
