I've been redoing the picture of Dylan, that gorgeous baby. And I actually like my last attempt the best so I think that's what will be entered.
See what you think:
This first one I absolutely adored, didn't want to finish it for fear I'd wreck it so I've left it pretty much alone. I added a bit more suggestion of hair and some additional cheek color.
Then came number two. Lots of red splotches on the baby's face.
Then number 3 which I like and which I think I'll use if I can find a frame.
Interesting lesson was learned on this photo source. My daughter had sent me this picture of her favorite friend's baby, Dylan. I loved it, knew I wanted to try my hand at it, and never thinking, cropped the photo into the version I've been painting. I lost the original photo as a result because the only saved version was the cropped one. I now make 2 or 3 copies of photos in my photo folders just so this won't happen again!
