Well, I recently heard that it is difficult to make a child look childish when you are making a portrait. I believe it! I painted this picture with oils many years ago. It is from a photo of me as a toddler. I guess it is pretty good, considering how inexperienced I was. I hope to make another one sometime in the future, in acrylics or maybe colored pencil or something else. The photo I used as a reference was black and white. I was free with my choice of colors. I like this painting!
