Eye to Eye 18" x 24"

Another painting of my grandson, this time at Spier in Stellenbosch. I know the purists don't like to paint from photographs, but the unposed nature of the picture appealed to me. And besides, to get a child of 6 years old to stand still for 20 seconds would be a major feat!

Hi Liz, nice to meet you. I love your paintings,especially the ones of your grandson. There is nothing wrong in painting from photos, particularly children and animals, and who has the time to 'sit' nowadays? I like to take snapshots of people in the street and paint them. Mind, I am no photographer! Anyway, thanks so much for your visit and your comment, it is very much appreciated.
