I just finished this 20×24 commission painting of these two children. The boy is Onyx and the girl is Brooklyn. People are always a challenge for me, but I love it. Getting the right skin tone, the right eye shape and color, the lips and teeth just right. It’s not easy, especially when the family and people around them all become your critic. So, I usually spend the most time on the drawing followed up by focusing on the shapes of the eyes, nose, mouth and chin. Those are features that can’t be off..not even a little bit. I enjoyed working on this piece, because I learned a lot about tones and shapes as well how to simplify where needed. I am grateful to be given such a gift from God that I may share it with others. Enjoy the painting!
