Will My Office Always Smell Like Terpentine???

Gag. Cough. Choke. I think I remember one of the reasons I began experimenting with acrylics several years ago!

My deadline to finish this painting is looming so guess where I spend the majority of my free time??!! But....the background is finished, except for some tweaking here and there and some detail to be added to the foreground later. Now on to the people. First up...the hair so I can get it out of the way. Hair is not one of my strong points! (Which is probably why, when in school, in one of my illustration classes for my airbrushed portrait assignment....I chose a BALD baby! My instructor, Jeff, teased me about that as he beautifully rendered a portrait of a woman with gorgeous long locks! But I'd had my fill of hair on a previous project with markers in which I illustrated a monkey! Gah!) But I digress. Back to the task at hand.

Little by little.....

Way, way, way back in the day, I used to dabble in oil painting. I hated it because of the 'dry time'. I was never too good either though.

Yours is looking awesome! =0)

Oh my gosh .... words can not describe my excitement watching my family come alive before my eyes. Tammy,your painting (through a picture no less) is truly capturing the love that is shared between child and father... I can feel it. I anxiously await the final product! We are all so blessed that you have chosen to use the talents God has bestowed upon you.
