Anderson #2

What a joy this one was!  He's such a cutie and the best thing about painting kids is getting intimate with all the little details that make them so precious.

Kung Fu Hands

Well, I've been neglecting this blog since it just seems to be providing fodder for spammers and I'm not motivated to do much about it. I'm excited about this one though, so I thought I'd jump back in.  This is my first non-commissioned painting in a while.  While I enjoy painting portraits, it's always refreshing to paint something for myself.  I've been training Ving Tsun (aka Wing Chun) kung fu for about a year and love it.  I've always liked paintings that show movement so I thought kung fu would make a nice subject.  I'm still playing around with underpaintings and this one started off hot pink and I like the little bits that show through.
