River – a portrait

River – 2017

A portrait of Tom’s great-nephew, River. I painted this from a black and white photo. The goal was to practice mixing realistic flesh tones and to capture a likeness. I need to work on all of the aspects of portraiture so I’d like to thank my family and friends for being such willing participants. This is an 8×10 oil on panel.
