I’ve been working on a new commission. It’s a portrait of a brother and sister for their granny as a birthday present. Hope she likes it! It’s been tricky to get the eyes right on Sam, but after his Mum sent through a few additional reference photo’s I got there in the end. It’s sometimes a tricky business capturing the character of young children, especially when you’ve never met them. That’s why it’s always recommended that you send me as many reference images as possible to help understand their expression and character.
